Weaving the Past is a documentary by Walter Dominguez and Shelley Morrison that is premiering in Pasadena, CA on August 15
Los Angeles - Director/Writer/Producer Walter Dominguez and Executive Producer Shelley Morrison (Chasing Light Pictures, LLC) have announced that their award-winning feature length documentary “Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery” is set to have its world premiere gala on Friday, August 15, at 7:00 p.m. at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 theater complex in Pasadena’s historic Playhouse District.
The exclusive engagement runs from Friday, August 15, to Thursday, Aug 21, 2014. Daily screenings during the run are 1, 4, 7 and 10pm.
Notable Los Angeles and Pasadena civic leaders, dignitaries, social justice activists and church leaders are among those attending opening night. A Q&A with the filmmakers and a Mexican fiesta-themed reception will follow.
Shelley (who co-starred as “Rosario” on the ground-breaking television comedy series, Will & Grace) said, “This remarkable documentary is garnering acclaim in preview screenings and has just won an ‘Accolade Award of Merit’ in an international film competition. We are excited about this film’s potential to reach a broad audience."
The documentary tells the dramatic story of Dominguez’s grandfather’s transformation from a young Mexican revolutionary fighting oppression in Mexico, into a political refugee and labor organizer in the mines of Arizona, and finally into a Mexican-American Methodist minister continuing his fight for social justice throughout the U.S. Southwest.
The film also weaves in Dominguez’s relentless twelve year quest to uncover the secrets of his grandfather’s early years of life and locate his grandfather’s long lost relatives in Mexico.
“This film is about family, history, heroes, justice and finding meaning in life," said Dominguez. "It’s been an emotional and deep process for me that took many years to complete. Whatever your ethnic background, the film reaches your core. Everyone has someone in the family history that has overcome great adversity and acted selflessly and heroically to benefit and help others. This documentary honors that nobility and courage in our ancestors."
