TONIGHT! Robert Gutierrez: Brushstrokes of Metropolitan Landscapes VIP Reception. The exhibit features three new art suites: Paris Magic; Los Angeles Revisited and New York/Central Park in winter.

Born in East Los Angeles, Roberto Gutierrez, is a Veteran of the U.S. Marines and a survivor of the Vietnam War, a true Hometown Hero. Gutierrez was one of just a few from his platoon who made it back home alive. However, upon his return, he became severely depressed and was diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). While battling PTSD and struggling not to fall victim to alcoholism and drug abuse, he decided to take advantage of his VA education benefits and enrolled at East Los Angeles College (ELAC). It was there that he finally found solace and where he discovered his great love of art. Since then, Roberto Gutierrez has gone on to become a distinguished Chicano artist whose paintings have captured the evolving landscapes of Los Angeles through the decades.

World Premiere of Cafe Con Leche a Ray Gallardo Film. Thursday, January 25, 2018 at Archlight Hollywood 7:30pm

ARCLIGHT HOLLYWOOD WELCOMES THE LOS ANGELES PREMIERE OF
CAFE CON LECHE A FILM
BY RAY GALLARDO

World Premiere of Cafe Con Leche a Ray Gallardo Film.

When an ATF agent out of Houston is tasked to team up with the Mexico City District Attorney on a human trafficking case, he uncovers family ties with a serpentine real-estate developer. Now he must work with a criminal defense attorney to stop the reign of tyranny.

MOVIE TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wa3QRuQJk8Y

Two brothers, Eduardo (Gerardo Taracena) and Franco (Martin Santander) are torn out of each other’s lives when their mother Angela Manrique-

Obregon (Monica Sanchez-Navarro) tries to flee Mexico after discovering her husband, Alvaro Manriques’ (Jose Sefami) criminal dealings. Alvaro tracks down a pregnant Angela with a young Franco as she attempts to make contact with her old friend Tracy. Things go awry when Alvaros men catch up to her and kidnapp Angela along with her newborn Eduardo back to Mexico. In a last ditch effort Tracy manages to escape and take Franco with her and promises Angela to keep him safe.

Years later, Franco is now a weathered ATF agent who is sent to work with

Rebecca Salinas (Nina Senicar) and Liz Gomez (Cassandra Sanchez- Navarro). Rebecca is Mexico City DA investigating Alvaro Manrique as a possible connection to the recent illegal trafficking busts. She works with Liz Gomez who is undercover looking for information on Alvaro. Franco and Liz have a romantic history together that never came to fruition and after Liz left to Mexico they are reunited and have to learn how to work together. Alvaro is now a prominent real-estate developer in Mexico City as well as a big importer and exporter. He has amassed a fortune running guns and trafficking people as well as manipulating political officials.
