Former San Diego City College student Brian Garcia’s newest movie, “Crossing the Line”, is set to screen March 16 at the San Diego Latino Film Festival.

Garcia credits his recent success in part to the motion picture production class at City College in which he was able to learn and hone his skills as a beginning movie director.

His his first movie was “Two Minutes for Revenge”, which he created as a student at City College, and helped him get into his major at San Diego State University.

“Crossing the Line”, is a short film about a mother who tries cross the border to reunite her daughter and her baby with her husband who is working in the US. As they cross the border they are intercepted by a group of vigilante minutemen. Their confrontation has tragic consequences.

“I just wanted people to learn from it,” Garcia said in a phone interview about his new movie.

The young movie director said his passion for movies has led “Crossing the Line” to transcend from just being a movie he made for school to a movie that has gone beyond and is now being shown at the Latino Film Festival.

The movie will play at 6:30 p.m. at Ultrastar Mission Valley Cinemas Hazard Center, 7510 Hazard Center Road, along with other short films. Cost per person is $10. For more information about the festival visit sdlatifilm.com.
