HOMEBOUND is a driven, independent film thatâ€™s been touring the film festival circuit and hitting up major cities across the country throughout 2014. It is currently being screened at Cinema Latino in Aurora, CO. The film is written, directed, and stars Fanny Veliz â€“ one of few Latina filmmakers creating movies in English. Much of the success is thanks to the support of the community and social media which has been the filmâ€™s number one marketing tool from fund-raising, to filming, and now distribution!
HOMEBOUND is the story of Richard Lynn, a successful young man who returns to his small hometown, El Campo, Texas. He has to help his father Gilberto who’s ill with cancer, run the family business, a dilapidated bar. Richard Lynn, accidentally falls in love for the first time with Sofia, a Venezuelan immigrant who speaks very little English.
As Richard Lynn befriends Sofiaâ€™s son, and is reminded of the friendships and culture of his hometown, he learns more about his fatherâ€™s illness, the truth about his motherâ€™s passing and their plans for him when he inherits it all. His secret desire to burn down the bar, which he blames for his motherâ€™s death, surfaces as he questions everything, his past, his future, and his understanding of family.
