The trailer for Water & Power is released and can be viewed below. The film marks the directorial debut for Richard Montoya.
“As a first time film maker I feel very fortunate but also the pressure to get it right – to raise the bar for Chicano Cinema which I remain committed to. For the story tellers, the people who send up smoke and work for change. To be an artist and an activist is an honor. To work with this team of collaborators is a privilege: Sundance, Suncast, Roberts & OBrien! Upward now…” said Montoya.
Water & Power, a Modern Noir on the streets of LA. Twin brothers nicknamed â€œWaterâ€ and â€œPowerâ€ from the hard scrabble Eastside streets of Los Angeles rise like princeâ€™s through the cityâ€™s political and police ranks to become players in a complex and dangerous web of the powerful and corrupt of Los Angeles. One a decorated cop â€“ the other a senator, find themselves inÂ a seedy motel room on the eastern edge of Sunset Boulevard on a dark and rainy night. Something has gone very wrong. Can Power exist without Water? The Fixers and Powers of the city need answers. Everybody is looking for the Twins.
Nothing is concrete in LA – except the river…..
Water & Power will be in select theaters on May 2, 2014.
