IN SELECT THEATERS | July 20th
Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in.
Longtime friends and collaborators, @DaveedDiggs
co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of #Oakland
. Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop, and spoken word, Blindspotting, boldly directed by #CarlosLópezEstrada
in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

I am very excited to be part of this project as it is the first web series written and produced by former and current international students (mainly from Latin America) living in Brisbane in collaboration with students from other nationalities, locals and Colombian film professionals.
El Australian Trip tells the story of Nico, who like myself decided to come to this country to follow the dream of studying abroad and learning a new language. I love all the crazy and funny experiences I’ve had, specially the ones caused by the language barrier 🙊 it has definitely been an amazing journey!
This story is for those who wonder how is the life of an international student in Brisbane.
After missing out on a once-in-a lifetime job opportunity because of his lack of English skills, Nico, a talented 25-year old Colombian film maker and entrepreneur, decides to leave his girlfriend, family and friends to go to Brisbane, Australia, and start a new chapter in his life.
Once in the sunshine state, Nico intends to improve his English and put into practice his profession, but it turns out that things are not so easy... With the company of new friends, who, like him, have also travelled to ultimately learn more about themselves, Nico not only has to learn a new language, but also must learn to navigate daily routines in a new cultural context.

Here I am wearing the plastic bag monster suit for the launch of our latest Papel e Caneta project #VOTEWITHYOURTOTE
- New Yorkers waste well over 500 plastic bags every year. It’s kind of insane when you think about it. I’m ashamed, for my own part, of mindlessly taking plastic bags when I don’t need them instead of using a reusable bag. @nygovcuomo
just announced a plastic bags ban for NY, which is nice in theory, but totally wrong based on the behavioral science. He is pushing a bad bill. Click the link in my bio for the real solution - the one that the plastics industry truly would hate to see.
