Captain's Blog, Stardate 082023.28: Inside the Director’s Cut: Guillermo Barahona & Rose Donahue – A Night of Evocative Storytelling
In the heart of Las Vegas, a city renowned for its entertainment magic, Millennium FANDOM BAR is lighting up its own stage to feature Nevada’s vibrant film community. For this edition of "Inside the Director's Cut," we’re thrilled to spotlight the extraordinary filmmaking duo of Guillermo E. Barahona C. and Rose Donahue. With their acclaimed short films, "Moe" (2022) and "Decision" (2023), these talented creators are making waves in the Film Festival circuit, and we can't wait to host them!
"Moe" is not just a documentary; it's a comedy-documentary hybrid that explores themes of friendship, self-acceptance, and the migrant diaspora. Centered on Moe, the film is a rollercoaster ride of emotions and reflections, serving as a microcosm for the immigrant experience. The film even includes an interview with Guillermo Barahona and his parents, opening up a heartfelt discussion on leaving El Salvador and building a life in the United States.
On a darker note, "Decision" delves into the depths of human emotion and the harsh realities of the American political climate, with a focus on immigration issues. It's a drama that presents a very real dilemma: making life-altering choices in an unstable environment. Featuring an array of gifted actors, "Decision" promises to leave you contemplating long after the credits roll.
