Intrn’l Video: Making choices in life is focal point of multi-national 8-minute film

LatinaLista — The word “lottery” has two meanings:

  1. a means of raising money by selling numbered tickets and giving prizes to the holders of numbers drawn at random.
  2. a process or thing whose success or outcome is governed by chance — “the lottery of life”

Both definitions include the word “chance,” underscoring just how unpredictable life can be — especially when it comes to love.

The Spanish-language short film, La Loteria, epitomizes life’s unpredictability both in front of and behind the camera. Written and directed by a New Zealander, the film stars Puerto Rican and Swedish actors, is scored by a Venezuelan and an American, and shot entirely in New York, and set in the Dominican Republic. To top it off, it’s full running time is only 8 minutes and 21 seconds.

La Loteria is about a guy named Augusto Ramirez, who while waiting for his flight to immigrate to the United States, recalls the three biggest regrets of his life.
