The Dominican film industry has gained international recognition and appreciation in recent years, especially in the United States, where between releases of films shot in the country to local films released there, they have transcended beyond film festivals to reach a wider audience.
In this article we will explore some of the most important films released in the United States, focusing on a representative list that includes cinematic names that have left an indelible mark on the Dominican film industry.
This is in light of the fact that “Colao 2”, directed by Frank Perozo, will be in theaters in New York, Massachusetts, Bronx, Pennsylvania, Yonkers, New Jersey and Rhode Island starting January 12.
“Colao 2,” directed by Frank Perozo, is a comedy that defies stereotypes by exploring the complexities of cross-cultural relationships. A cast full of Dominican stars: Nashla Bogart, Manny Perez, Raymond Pozo, Miguel Cespedes and Celines Toribio.
