Mia Maestro, William Bermudez And Sam Friedman Discuss Grassland | LALIFF INTERVIEW

The Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival (LALIFF) ends this evening with a strong film, Grassland. A film that covers some of society’s topics, including the injustices from a broken system. This touching story comes from the inspiration of the directors, William Bermudez and Sam Friedman life growing up. With the intention to encourage a fix to some of the unfairness from marginalizing individuals.

A couple of days ago I was connected with Mia Maestro, William Bermudez and Sam Friedman to discuss the making of Grassland. The filmmakers share their personal experiences that inspired them to make the film and create the character “John” played by Jeff Kober. The actress discussed how “Sophia” was created and her favorite scene in the film that speaks some truth.
