Cesar Alejandro is working to make a documentary about the life and art of Luis Jimenez, the first Latino/Hispanic sculptor to come to National and International prominence in the United States. With your help, we can aid independent documentarians in the telling of stories from every part of American society, to inspire us all.
GO FOR SISTERS has officially opened in cities coast-to-coast, to sold-out houses and fantastic press! But the film’s journey is far from over. New cities have been added all across the US, and we’re happy to announce all the places you’ll be able to catch John’s newest film in the coming months!
