The long wait is finally over. We now have a cinematic opus that does justice to our beloved Washington Heights. GWB is a film about our neighborhood, made by folks from the neighborhood, that viscerally documents the drama, joys, highs and lows of this dynamic, diverse and vibrant community. With a cast that includes Rayniel Rufino, Antonio Ortiz, Luis Ramos, Raul Esparza, Alexandra Metz and Olga Merediz among many others, this movie aims to capture the sights, sounds, colors and energy of this often forgotten and misrepresented part of Manhattan. GWB has been selected to premiere in competition at the 2011 New York International Latino Film Festival. Stay tuned for much more about the movie in the coming weeks.
