Mill Valley Film Festival: Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo
US/International premiere featuring Danny Trejo in person!
En este retrato conmovedor, divertido y revelador, el improbable héroe de Hollywood Danny Trejo traza con sinceridad su propio sensacional viaje desde un prisionero de prisión para niños y adolescentes con problemas, hasta una estrella ubicua con una de las caras más reconocibles del mundo y casi 400 créditos de cine y televisión, incluidos Heat, Breaking Bad y Machete.
With nearly 400—and counting!—film and television credits since 1985, Danny Trejo is one of the most prolific and recognizable actors around. But his remarkable ascent to beloved Hollywood hero notorious for tough guy roles in Heat, Breaking Bad, and the Machete series was as hard-earned as it was unexpected.
In this moving, funny, and revealing portrait, Trejo candidly traces his own sensational out-of-the-ashes journey from troubled kid growing up in Pacoima, CA, to teenage drug addict and San Quentin prison inmate, to ubiquitous film star, restauranteur, philanthropist, and role model.
With help from his most ardent champions, including his children, friends, and famous colleagues (Robert Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, and Michelle Rodriguez), Brett Harvey’s affecting profile is as raw and intimate as it is a buoyant celebration of an exceptional life, telling a story of unlikely survival, rare humility, and a profound transformation that led to a real-life Hollywood ending.
EXPECTED GUESTS: Subject Danny Trejo, Director Brett Harvey, Producer Adam Scorgie
