Last Wednesday a special premiere and free public screening of the film Water & Power was held at Grand Park across the street from Los Angeles City Hall. The cast, celebrities and city officials were in attendance for this special event along with thousands in attendance to view this film under the stars.
WATER & POWER – Tells the story of two brothers nicknamed Water & Power by their hard-working father who was an irrigation field man for the famed Department of Water & Power of Los Angeles (LADWP). From the blue-collar housing projects of the cityâ€™s Eastside to the very corridors of power where deals are made in the City of Angels – WATER & POWER explores a cautionary tale – with a Chicano twist. Told in the classic L.A. noir style – with a darkly humorous tone – a hallmark for which Montoya is known in the theater.
WATER (ENRIQUE MURCIANO) is a rising political star and California state senator. POWER (NICHOLAS GONZALEZ) is a top cop in the LAPD elite upper chain of command. Following an unexpected and unavoidable tragedy, the brothers find themselves in a seedy motel room on the eastern edge of Sunset Boulevard on a dark and rainy night. Can they survive the long night? Can there be Water without Power? Will they remember the tough love lessons taught to them by their hard-working father?
