Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 10:00 AM

This just in, from some Tucson Weekly readers. Note the gratutious kiss-up effort at the end:


WHO: All Short Film Fans!

WHAT: Short Film (20 min) by local director Rio Finnegan and Donny Tran

WHEN: 7 p.m., Friday August 17th

WHERE: Temple of Music and Art

Talented up and coming local filmmakers Rio Finnegan and Producer Donny Tran will premiere their 20 minute short film titled Pinata on Friday August 17th at the Temple of Music and Art at 7pm. The film was shot in Tucson, Arizona including Barrio Anita using local actors Mike Miller and Tanya Aksamentova and music by local musicians Eli Roepke and Ruben Moreno from the mariachi band Luz de Luna. The plot focuses on a man who brings the body of a murdered woman into his house. The mystery of the body becomes a catalyst to his mental breakdown. Rio recently won at the Loft’s “First Friday Shorts” for his short film My Life Has Stood A Loaded Gun. The filmmakers are thankful that the Temple of Music and Arts proudly supports their art and offered a venue dedicated to promoting local talent.

Following the film, Rio Finnegan, the movie’s director will host a Q&A session. The film will be screened at the Temple of Music and Art at 330 South Scott Avenue. There will be snack and refreshments afterwards.

*adult themes/situations PG-13

Rio Finnegan is a recent City High Graduate. Donny Tran taught documentary arts at VOICES Community Stories, which had numerous stories in the Tucson Weekly ... THE BEST PAPER EVER!
