Endless Media, LLC’s short film DORIS has been selected at the Boston Latino Film Festival. The film will screen as part of the shorts program at 8:00pm on Nov 21st at Northeastern University in the West Village Residence Complex.
“Doris” tells the story of an undocumented Mexican housemaid working for a spoiled family, where she works hard to satisfy their every whim in exchange for their support with her green card application. When the family leaves for the holidays, Doris is put in charge of the embittered and bigoted Grandpa. After finding common ground, they take over the house, and break all the rules, having the time of their lives.
“I strongly believe that there is nothing more powerful than presenting reality as it is,” says Director Oscar Rodriguez Gorriz. “Life itself is a drama and a comedy at the same time. I believe that DORIS will make people think about this important social issue and will open a conversation about it, and at the same time, audiences will be entertained by it”.
“Doris” stars Lidia Porto (Horrible Bosses 2) and Fred Ochs (300: Rise of An Empire). It is produced by Elettra Canovi and Najeeb Khuda, and written by Oscar Rodriguez Gorriz, Ricardo Lopez Rendon, and Miguel Valdez-Lopez.
