ABOUT THE SHOW
Loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, with a touch of The Wizard of Oz, the amazing adventures of young Alicia take her on a journey from a Mexican curio shop to an understanding of her national heritage. After tripping over some Mexican pottery, Alicia whirls off on a mystical journey to the Aztec temple to find the Pottery Maker who knows what becomes of the souls which have become trapped in Mexican pottery. En route, she meets an armadillo, a Day of the Dead sugar skull, a cactus man, and the Tree of Heads in this delightful adventure fantasy.
ABOUT THE PROCESS
This film is the product of an exciting new collaboration between the Drama, Digital Filmmaking, and Spanish programs. Ira Gardner was the Director of Photography and led his cinematography students through every step of this process, from camera operation to sound engineering. Our Spanish Language Adjunct Instructor Conrado Zepeda-Pallares also made numerous invaluable contributions to the project. In addition to staring in the film, Conrado served as the Cultural Specialist and language instructor for the film. Our Drama Adjunct Instructor Chris Hansen facilitated the scenic and property design, while I served as the director and executive producer for the film. I couldn't be prouder of the work we have done here and of the exciting partnership that has culminated with this film. Personally, I can't wait for our next creative collaboration together!
All of our Drama and Digital Filmmaking students poured their hearts and souls (and a phenomenal amount of time) into this wonderful production, and we can't wait to share it with all of you!
