Better to Chase a Dream, Than Live Without One
“CARLOS” DANCES WITH FILMS
On June 13, Carlos Through the Tall Grass, a comedy about a first-gen, Latino high school student, will make its World Premiere at Dances With Films festival in Hollywood. Written and directed by Rick Dominguez and produced by Patti McCarthy, the film shares the story of Carlos, a brilliant high schooler who is having a hard time deciding whether to go to college or stay home to take care of his quirky family and friends who depend upon him.
Carlos faces a dilemma familiar to Latino, first-gen students who carry the guilt of leaving their friends and family behind. Carlos is a coming-of-age story about realizing you can’t get anywhere new if you stick to the same familiar roads—sometimes your dreams are just out of sight, waiting for you, beyond the tall grass.
