René Pérez Joglar, known as "Residente," is set to make his acting debut in the film "In the Summers," which has been selected for presentation at the renowned Sundance Film Festival. The selection positions the film as one of the most anticipated features at the festival.
"In the Summers" narrates a compelling story that spans several formative years in the lives of two sisters, Violetas and Eva. They guide their loving but volatile father, Vicente, during his annual summer visits to their home in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
The film delves into the world of the sisters, who spend each summer with their affectionate yet reckless father. While Vicente creates a world filled with wonder, beneath this playful exterior, he struggles with addiction, which slowly diminishes the magical aura and leads to a tragic climax. The narrative explores Vicente's attempt to reclaim the past and the challenges of healing emotional wounds.
