Sacramento is proud to announce a screening of “Windows on the World”, a feature film directed by Michael D. Olmos, and staring Sacramento’s very own Ryan Guzman. The film recently won several awards at the LA Method Film Festival, including Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor.
The story begins on the morning of September 11, 2001, where Fernando and his family in Mexico watch the news in horror as the Twin Towers collapse. His father, Balthazar, is an undocumented busboy on the top floor in the Windows on the World restaurant. Three weeks pass, and there is no word from Balthazar. No telephone calls, money orders, or hope that he is alive. As the family grieves, feeling the emotional and financial toll of their absent patriarch, Fernando’s distraught mother swears she sees her husband on news footage – escaping from the building ALIVE. Heroic Fernando decides to take the epic journey from Mexico to New York City to find his father and save his family. Along the way, he finds love and befriends an eclectic group of international characters that help him restore his faith in humanity, as Fernando discovers the hard truths about his father, the melting pot of America, and the immigrant experience.
As part of the screening, renowned actor Ryan Guzman will be in attendance. “Windows on the World” will screen on Wednesday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m.
