Directed by Eduardo Maytorena, Wayne Mitchell
Victor has a past that he’d like to leave behind. Fortunately, in Los Angeles, anonymity isn’t hard to come by. In this town if you’re not a celebrity then you’re meant to be ignored. This is where we find Victor. A lonely limousine driver who spends his life driving from one location to another. A middleman for anyone willing to pay. Like the tens of thousands employed in the periphery of LA’s service industry – the more invisible the better.
Tonight becomes something different though. Tonight Victor picks up Raquel. A refreshing breath of fresh air among Victor’s usual stale clientele. A beautiful young lady dressed to go to the ball. The only problem now being her prom date, Preston; Victor’s employer. A spoiled child of means that lives high in the hills but talks like he’s hood. Nothing new for any driver. Limos and douchebags go together like night-clubs and roofies. When people get in the back seats of limousines, their true character comes out, and some people only feel like Kings when they’re stepping on Pawns. Any other night, it might of played out differently; but breathes of fresh air don’t come around too often. And when some lines get crossed, they can’t be uncrossed.
SOLEDAD tells the story of an unlikely friendship that develops after an act of compassion sets off a series of events -destined to change the lives of everyone involved. A road-trip adventure through the heart of Los Angeles that reminds us that the thing about memories is, you have to have the experiences first. Created and Produced by a team of first-time film-makers; the cast and crew came together to make the type of independent feature film they’ve always dreamed of. Shot through out the city of Los Angeles with the RED Mysterium, over 14 nights and 3 days; SOLEDAD is a testament to a life long friendship between the star, (Jesse Celedon) and film-makers (Eduardo Maytorena & Wayne Mitchell) culminating in to an original movie experience only the three of them could have made.
