About Mamitas

Beautifully shot in Echo Park and against Los Angeles' downtown skyline, this beguiling coming-of-age romance introduces two phenomenal young actors in EJ Bonilla and Veronica Diaz-Carranza.  At school, Jordin (Bonilla) is a cocky but charming Latino firebrand; at home he is a doting grandson who can’t seem to please his perpetually cranky father. On the day he’s suspended for insulting a teacher, Jordin meets Felipa (Diaz-Carranza), a bookish, no-nonsense New York girl who sees past the swaggering facade. The two immediately embark on an unlikely friendship that inspires Jordin to find out who he really is.

Written and directed by the remarkable Nicholas Ozeki in his feature debut, Mamitas stars EJ Bonilla, Veronica Diaz, Jennifer Esposito, Joaquim de Almeida, Jesse Garcia and Pedro Armendariz Jr.
