La Mission, a film by Peter Bratt, starring Benjamin Bratt, Erika Alexander, Jeremy Ray Valdez, Jesse Borrego & Talisa Soto Bratt makes it's world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
Jesse Borrego, the San Antonio-born actor, calls “La Mission” a beautiful film that will have an impact on audiences. It tells the story of a traditional Latino father who struggles to come to terms with his teenage son’s homosexuality.
Borrego says he’d like to screen the film in San Antonio this year at a film festival he’s trying to organize through his Cine Studio San Antonio, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to developing artists and filmmakers.
