Produced and directed by award winning filmmaker Marco Santiago (El Trafico, Once Upon a Time in the Desert, Into the Border), and with an anticipated production start date of January 15, 2005, “86” will be shot primarily as a 35mm film project while at the same time exploring the potential of Canon’s new XL2 camera with Mini35 adaptor. “We expect to take full advantage of each medium where appropriate in order to tell the story in the desert and in the urban areas”, says Santiago. With an expected running time of approximate 35 min, 86 will be a highly abbreviated version of the feature film project currently in development and planned for production in late 2005. “We expect this film to be very entertaining while touching on some timely issues as they relate to trafficking in humans and other related subject matter – it will make an impact on the audience.” he continues. "I see this film as an important social impact film, and I’m pleased to be a part of it." says veteran independent film casting director Faith Hibbs-Clark of Good Faith Casting, who is expected to attract the interest of name talent to this project.

‘86’ is the story of four young adults who, while returning from a vacation in Mexico, accidentally run over a border-crossing couple. Unbeknownst to the rest of his friends, Cisco secretly transports contraband across the border. Fearing disclosure, he resists getting involved in the rescue of the mortally wounded couple. "I like to think of the story as 'Traffic' meets ‘Very Bad Things’", Santiago continues.

Most recently coming off the completion of 'Once Upon a Time in the Desert,' ‘86’ marks Volarefilms LLC’s transition into feature film production. “This project raises the stakes for us, as it is represents a major investment toward the development of our first feature film project for next year,” says Marco.
