Ricardo Mendoza's "Ash Wednesday"

The trailer is now online for Director Ricardo Mendoza's next film, "Ash Wednesday". Following up the success of "El Escape de los Santos", R has created a chilling look into life on the border. Check out the trailer and production blog at Digital Work Studios. Ricardo was on our very first panel at the San Antonio Film Forum, and we hope to have him back with more insight into his world of independent filmmaking.
