The Last Hot Lick was shot entirely in Oregon and Southern Washington. Though I have lived out of state for many years, Oregon is still the landscape of my childhood—and imagination. This film was an effort of pure love, family, and community. My mother produced the film, even though she is a physician by profession, the crew members consisted of family and friends, including my uncle, aunts, cousins, as well as three friends who traveled from Argentina to Oregon to be involved. Jaime Leopold and many of the cast members are people whom I have known my entire life. This made the process an interesting and emotional experience, which I think bleeds onto the screen and creates a unique and surprising experience for the audience.
