We're extremely pleased to announce that ILEGALES has won two awards at the Naperville Independent Film Festival, where it was nominated for a total of four awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress. Our lead actor, Luis Bordonada, won Best Actor for his portrayal of Ariel Vargas, a day laborer who works in the cotton fields of New Mexico. Luis Bordonada's parents brought him to the U.S. illegally as a child, so he's lived many of the experiences that ILEGALES touches on. Lately, Luis has appeared in The Book of Eli, A Bakery Story and can be seen in the upcoming feature The Reunion. Additionally, he has done theater productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest, television commercials for Showtime Networks, and hosted an entertainment program called Remix TV.
