Nashville film "The Trailer" in early morning Saturday premiere

According to the following press release, the Nashville film "The Trailer" will premiere at 3:00 a.m. on TeleFutura Channel 42. The plot centers around a taco trailer owner.

TeleFutura, Channel 42, Nashville's only Spanish language TV station, this week premieres the locally produced short film 'The Trailer.' The film will be broadcast at 3.00 a.m. on Saturday February 25.

'The Trailer' is written and directed by local filmmaker Carlos Griffin and features Yuri Cunza in the lead role as Luis Reyes alongside Valeria Barriga, Kris Campa, Jennifer Richmond and Victor Gomez.

"This is an excellent short film and we are delighted to be able to showcase local movie makers on Channel 42," said Inga Chamberlain, General Sales Manager, TeleFutura, Channel 42. "We are very excited about becoming more involved with the thriving Hispanic film community in Nashville."

The movie revolves around Luis who is living a double life. One is with his attractive and exciting girlfriend, and the other is with his devoted wife who runs the family business: a small taco trailer. Unfortunately both his worlds collide when Luis' wife Marissa tells him that he's going to be a father. The situation gets worse when Luis discovers that his younger brother, Alex, is getting involved in drugs. When a tragedy occurs, Luis is forced to choose between the family that desperately needs him and the woman who offers him an easy way out.

"I'm very pleased to have The Trailer premiering on Telefutura, Channel 42," says writer and director Carlos Griffin. " The film was meant to be a tribute to my Hispanic heritage and (on a larger scale) to the thriving Hispanic community in Nashville, so I believe it makes perfect sense for Channel 42 to premiere it locally. I hope that this film opens doors for other local Hispanic talent and showcases the tremendous creativity that is present in Nashville's artistic community, Latino or otherwise. I hope that everyone enjoys seeing the film as much as I enjoyed making it."

Yuri Cunza, a well known Nashville Hispanic actor, takes on the lead role. "Carlos is an excellent writer and director and I've been acting since I was 13 years old. I have a degree in film and was very excited to take on this dramatic role. Nashville's emergent film industry is now more than ever welcoming of Hispanic talent at all levels."
