I’m very thrilled to join the cast of Isabel Sandoval’s feature film Lingua Franca, playing the character of Chad. You might have seen Isabel’s film Apparition, which showed at MoMA last year. Producers on the film include Oscar-winner Gigi Dement, and Grammy- and Tony-Award winner Jhett Tolentino.
Synopsis: Olivia, an undocumented Filipino transwoman, works as a caregiver to Olga, an elderly Russian woman, in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. When Olivia runs out of options to attain legal status in the US, she becomes romantically involved with Alex, Olga’s adult grandson, in the pursuit of a marriage-based green card.
