Cruz Montoya (Kuno Becker), a rock star on the West Coast poetry circuit, rushes back home when his father, Senior (Rubén Blades), falls fatally ill. Once there, Cruz retreats to his old life, reuniting with Emilio (Miguel Sandoval), an old friend turned local crime boss, and losing his poetic voice, his identity, and almost his life, before he finds his way out. The New York premiere of Spoken Word was curated by Jason Silverman and is co-presented with Luminaria Films.
Producer Bill Conway, Co-screenwriter Joe Ray Sandoval and Curator Jason Silverman will be present for a Q&A following the screening. (Dir. Victor Nunez, USA, 2009, 116min, Drama, English).
