Local Actress Shaina Sandoval on Her First Film, Immigration Politics, and Her Future on the Silver Screen
Can you describe how you acted out the film's relevant and controversial immigration scenario?
I grew up in Dallas, Texas, and I lived there for 15 years ... I didn't know much about [immigration politics], so I definitely had to do my research on my character and knowing what the movie was going to be about and what happens when those situations happen. It was definitely very hard, and it's a sad subject.
Is there a particular film festival you're most excited for?
I am excited for everything...I haven't gone to any of the film festivals yet, so I'm just so excited.
The Phoenix premiere is at 7 p.m. at the Montelucia Spa & Resort at 4949 E. Lincoln Dive in Scottsdale. Tickets for the premiere range from $50-150. For information on the premiere, visit Red Carpet Premiere website.
