York Little Theatre (YLT), in conjunction with the Art Institute of York, held the Prometheus Film Festival in York, Pennsylvania. The Festival run for two days, on August 27-28, 2010 that selected and screened thirty two movies. Actor, Director, Producer and Writer, Nash Bhatt with his film, The Rise and Fall of Their American Dream, dominated the awards ceremony as The Winner of “Best Feature Film Award " and “Audience Choice Award".
In his award acceptance speech Nash said "Winning the Best Feature Film Award and Audience Choice Award is definitely a matter of pride for me, but the credit should go to the cast and crew of the Rise and Fall of Their American Dream". Nash dedicated the Award to everyone in the world who believes in true friendship. Nash Said "True friendship breaks all the barriers of race, religion, language, and ethnicity background, like friendship among three protagonists of The Rise and Fall of Their American Dream movie".
Prior to this event, The Rise and Fall of Their American Dream won “Bronze Palm Award" at Mexico International Film Festival. The movie was also selected for screening at prestigious Hoboken Film Festival, where Nash was nominated for "Best Actor in Supporting Role".
The Rise and Fall of Their American Dream revolves around Carlos, (Omar Alcaraz), Vijay, (Nash Bhatt), and Mike, (Tony Black); three fearless strangers whose relentless pursuit of the fabled "American Dream" coincides. Their fateful meeting forever alters the course of their desperate lives. Carlos illegally migrates from Mexico and is forced to toil for pennies as a mechanic. A greedy Indian motel owner lures Vijay from India with the promise of riches, but instead enslaves him as a worker. Mike, who is indebted to his mob boss uncle, befriends the two immigrants and their combined courage, ambition, and friendship lead them to the top of a criminal empire. A horrific event causes their monumental rise to come to a crashing halt and forces them to define loyalties.
Shot in United States, Mexico, and India, Tony, Nash, and Omar give fine performances that cleverly exudes male bonding and loyalty through the clandestine world of drugs, prostitution an trafficking within motels, and how politicians blatantly fall drive corruption in small unheard of towns by the boarder. The fine mix of racial cultural and ethnic backgrounds that share one thing in common: The American Dream. Monika Mojica gives a tremendous performance as a female trafficked from Mexico, and Jay Thacker was brilliant in playing Bob Patel, the greedy motel owner. Ted LeBlang gives the strong performance in the film as morally twisted and brutal mob boss. Ciro Vela, Jr. is able to fine-tune his performance as an under boss that is truly vindictive and soft-spoken monster. Andrew Roth, as Tommy Lazzario immerses himself in the role of a psychologically deranged and sadistic violent lunatic.
