movie short Snaphot directed by Kevin Coleman

Release date: September 2005

Written by John Cruz
Produced by Brian Armes
Directed by Kevin Coleman

In an East Los Angeles community, some use guns to settle issues; a seventeen year-old girl meets them head on and stands with a weapon of her choice, a camera.

Story: Esperanza is an aspiring photographer from a quiet neighborhood in Pasadena. Her best friend, Rosa, has recently become involved with Al, a gang leader from a gritty East Los Angeles neighborhood. Rosa takes Esperanza to Boyle Heights to meet Al. He shows them around his neighborhood, his gang, and his family, opening Espeanza's eyes to both the depravity and the beauty of life in Al's barrio. Esperanza's naivety and brandishing of her camera causes a disturbance in Al's set which endangers the lives of everyone she cares for. After that tragic day, Esperanza must decide what her life will become as she faces the loss of those she loves caused by the art she loves.
