DENVER BASED FEATURE FILM, COLFAX & 15TH , PREMIERES
AT THE DENVER FILM CENTER, MONDAY MARCH 5TH AT 7PM.
Denver, CO â€“ Director Stephen Santa Cruz & cinematographer Joel Stangleâ€™s feature film Colfax &15th will screen one night only at the Denver Film Center on March 5th. The film is a fictional account exploring a faction of Denverâ€™s criminal underworld as it intertwines with the bounty retrieval business. The film features all local actors including Joseph Trujillo and Ariana Sanchez. Q&A with Santa Cruz will follow the screening and Denver.
Colfax & 15th is about Issac, a young hood turned bounty hunter, who finds himself caught within a hidden web of corruption. He begins to unravel the shady organization of his employer, Rome, a bail-bondsman whoâ€™s fallen deep into a world of criminality. As Issac tries to reform his life, he is led down a path of deceit into an unseen subculture that teeters on the edge of law and lawlessness. Now, with a child on the way, Isaac must use his knowledge of the streets to survive and collect on one last bounty.
The two aspiring filmmakers, Stangle and Santa Cruz, both from Denver, Colorado, set out to make a film that authentically reflected the thriving but loosely monitored bail bonds and bounty retrieval industry in the modern western United States.
Santa Cruz describes the nature of this film and its exploration of a hidden facet of Denver:
â€œâ€¦we wanted to portray a side of the modern west that is seldom seen: corrupt, disenfranchised, impoverished, addicted and violent. Itâ€™s ugly at its surface, but underneath we find the human condition at work.â€
The screening begins at 7pm. The Denver Film Center Colfax is located at 2510 East Colfax, Denver, CO 80206, in the Lowenstein CulturePlex.
