A second screening added on Sunday, 8:40 PM at the Ashland Street Cinema.
Ed (Andrew Perez) and Dion (Dillon Porter), two half brothers estranged from each other and their late father, travel to Columbia to spread his ashes in the places that meant the most to him. They embark on a journey of self-discovery that takes them from Bogota to coastal
Guajira to Cartagena. Along the way, they revisit the dazzling sights, misadventures, and romances of their father’s hidden life, bringing them closer to his memory and home- land — and eventually each other. Producer and co-star Dillon Porter (son of Executive Producer Brian Porter of Porter’s Restaurant) and other crew members hail from Medford, Oregon.
Director’s Statement: A.D. Freese
Bastards y Diablos is an epic story about intimate themes — brotherhood, legacy, love, and death — told in an unconventional manner. Inspired by true events in the life of the screenwriter’s father, and including a cast largely comprised of non-actors, many of whom are family members or former lovers of the actual Colombian man, the film seamlessly blends reality with fiction to create an authentic, immersive journey. Both personal and universal, it hones in on spontaneous human moments while capturing the breathtaking landscape of Colombia. It was shot entirely on location in a dozen cities across Colombia by a crew of six, on a budget of $25,000.
