“Homeboy Highbrow” – Latina
WATER & POWERa film by RICHARD MONTOYA
Emilio Rivera, Clancy Brown, Roger Guenveur Smith, Nicholas Gonzalez, Enrique Muricano
Edward James Olmos presents the feature film directorial debut of writer/director Richard Montoya. Based on his award-winning play of the same name (originally produced at the Mark Taper Forum) this is the story of two brothers nicknamed “Water” and “Power” by their hard-working father, an irrigation field man for the infamous Los Angeles Department of Water & Power. From the blue-collar housing projects of East LA to the very corridors of power where deals are made, the two -one a state senator and the other a ranking official in the LAPD- have risen beyond their modest roots…but at what cost?
Told in the classic L.A. noir style WATER & POWER explores a cautionary tale – with a Chicano twist.
Stars Emilio Rivera of “Sons of Anarchy” and this season’s “MAYANS M.C”
