John Leguizamo Stars in Latino Film Festival’s Exclusive Release of “Sueño”

Media Arts Center San Diego’s San Diego Latino Film Festival is proud to present the exclusive San Diego premiere of the John Leguizamo hit musical and romantic comedy, “Sueño”. “Sueño” will be screened November 11 - 17, 2005 at the new UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas at Hazard Center.

“Sueño” stars some of the hottest Latino actors in Hollywood today, including John Leguizamo (Ice Age, Moulin Rouge), Elizabth Peña (The Incredibles, Transamerica, Tortilla Soup), and Ana Claudia Talacon (El Crimen del Padre Amaro, Ladies Night, The Virgin of Juarez).

John Leguizamo stars in this Latino Musical as Antonio, a very talented young musician from Mexico, pursuing his dream of becoming a singer in Los Angeles. Consistently thwarted by constant rejection, he’s about to give up when his manager, El Zorro, an eclectic and a colorful radio personality, convinces him to enter a local radio sponsored Latino singing competition.

He finally will have his chance to make his music heard...if he can just find a band. At the same time, he finds himself involved in a romantic triangle with two very different women, a neighbor in her 40s (Elizabeth Peña) and a young veterinary student (Ana Claudia Talancon). 

The vibrant on-screen musical performances incorporate the eclectic vibes of Rock En Español, Latin Electronica, Punk and Rap with the smooth sounds of old school Bolero. The film has no traditional score, but rather utilizes the original works of over 20 different bands and musicians. These popular artists include Cafe Tacuba, Ozomatli, Kinky, Quetzal, Pepe Aguilar, and José José. 

“Sueño” will be screened for one week only exclusively at the new UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas at Hazard Center from November 11th (Fri) through November 17th (Thur).

“Sueño” will screen five times daily from November 11-17. Tickets are $8.50 general admission and $6.50 students/seniors. “Sueño” is rated PG-13 and is in English.
