Theatrical Release of Una y Otra Vez scheduled for October 21 through October 27, 2011

This is a story about the human spirit, the limit that a person reaches before you feel you can't go on anymore, and finding the strength to get past it.

Dually-filmed in Chicago and in Colombia, Una y Otra Vez, written by author and executive producer Fabio B. Herrera, is a film based on true events. Among the favorites at the 2011 Chicago Latino Film Festival, where it sold out on its opening night, Una y Otra Vez recounts the complicated life story of a fictional character, Oliveiro Maldonado, who as a child living in the Andes of Colombia, is the innocent victim of sexual abuse. Oliveiro eventually emigrates to the United States, hoping to escape the ghosts of his tragic childhood. He constantly relives the abuse he suffered as a child, a challenge he alone must face as he adjusts to life in his new country, overcoming discrimination, defeat, physical and psychological trauma.

“What is most significant about this movie, is how it captivated audiences at the Chicago Latino Film Festival in April, and at the dual premieres in Chicago and in Colombia. Now that it is being released to general audiences, my hope is that it will continue to bring to light a discussion that is all too often hidden or concealed,” said Fabio B. Herrera, executive producer of Una y Otra Vez, and after whom the film is based.
