Director R. Ellis Frazier (Repeater) is now two-for-two this week, presenting a look at border crime thriller, Day Labor, which stars Roberto Sanchez, Louis Mandylor and Amy Johnston, and with actor Corin Nemec voicing over exactly the kind of seething villain that feels so prevalent and timely as the film does in whole. The narration definitely doesn’t let up on the ugliness.
A Latino American veteran who seeks work as a day laborer in order to keep his family afloat. A regular day turns into a deadly game of survival when he is mistakenly dropped off at a private ranch in El Paso, Texas to be hunted for sport.
Also starring are Kevin Gage, David Fernandez Jr., Denitza Garcia, Megan Henry, Armando Zamarripa and Gary Cairns. The film is produced by David Wach and Ojan Missaghi whose Toric Films will be present at the upcoming Cannes Film Market for buyers.
