Barrio Boy the feature, based on the successful short of the same name is in the final stages of casting. We are so excited with the first rate ensemble of brilliant actors that is being assembled.

The tragedy in Orlando only drives the Barrio Boy team even harder to bring this film to life. #PulseOrlando http://instagram.com/barrioboyfilm
