After three years in prison, Enrique (Esai Morales, who also executive produced) returns home to the Bronx to find the world he knew has changed. His wife, Angela (Judy Reyes), struggles to hide an emotional affair, and his teenage son Michael (introducing newcomer Harmony Santana), explores a sexual transformation well beyond Enrique’s grasp and understanding.  Unable to accept his child, Enrique clings to his masculine ideals while Angela attempts to hold the family together by protecting Michael.  Still under the watchful eye of his parole officer, Enrique must become the father he needs to be or, once again, risk losing his family and freedom.

Can a father’s fierce love for his family overcome his street-hardened ideas about manhood and end the vicious cycle controlling his life?

Writer/director Rashaad Ernesto Green’s first feature film is an intricate portrait of a family divided told with sensitivity, gentle humor, and deep understanding of an environment that shapes its people.  GUN HILL ROAD premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and recently screened as part of the ImageNation Cinema Foundation and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and is the Opening night of Outfest Film Festival 2011

Michael Sanchez or Vanessa (Harmony Santana) :”He is very shy, reserved, quiet and I was very lucky when I met  Rashaad in a Gay parade giving flyers for an audition. When he saw me he mentioned that he needed people like me. After that, I told him that I want to play Harmony and in the second casting when I was wearing like a woman I got the role. My message for the gay community is that never be afraid of this society. You have to fight for your dreams. I have friends that committed suicide because of this society that rejects us. So you always have to be brave and never give up your dreams.”

Dawson said in press conference: “I don’t have much to say, I just decided to be here and I still press myself when I awake up, I can’t believe that this fights is really about happen, I been chasing this for along 3 years, now I will fight to be one of the best fights. My life is good, I just had a new baby boy on Monday Morning, so my son prince is here and all the four I’m taking care. This is all of nothing. My goal in my career out of this  table, for those believers, when you believe what can you do, you will do the best in the ring and  I’m going to be the best fighters in the world.”


Hopkins: “I’m glad to be back to LA, normally I’m here three times per year, but now I’m the main fighter at this stage by long long great career and feel love because people respect skills and now I’m going to display on our side to track is bravery and respectful for me,  so I want to thank all the fans and everybody. I heard a couple of things that Gary said in the past and he showed about that fighting or  they wanted to fight  whether is true or not is hard to be here, believe it or not.”

Newly-Launched Schoolbags for Kids Sells Designer Backpacks With a Purpose

The mission is simple. One Here. One There.™ For each schoolbag purchased, Schoolbags for Kids will give another schoolbag filled with supplies to a child in need.

“The impact of what we’re building hit me during a schoolbag drop in Belize”


It started with a four-month trip around the world. Co-founder Luis Garcia had spent more than twenty years as creative director and packaging designer, working for some of the world’s most successful global beauty and fragrance companies.

But “something was missing,” said Garcia. “I had recently hit my 40s and wanted to do something more meaningful.” That something came after spending time volunteering in schools and orphanages in the world’s poorest countries. “It’s the kids that really get you,” said Garcia. “Their hope, optimism.” Schools were being built, teachers were in place, but supplies were difficult to come by for the orphanages and families who struggle to meet their basic everyday needs. He saw this need across each country he visited.

When he returned home, Garcia and his long-time business partner and entrepreneur Kalon Gutierrez, combined their years of experience in the branding and design world – at companies like L’Oreal/Ralph Lauren Fragrances, Bobbi Brown and Sephora – and agreed to build the Schoolbags for Kids company.

“The impact of what we’re building hit me during a schoolbag drop in Belize,” said Gutierrez. “A simple pencil to these kids holds so much meaning. Without these supplies, education is very difficult to come by.”

This year’s back-to-school launch features The Signature Collection, which comes in six unique color combinations. With its unique horizontal design this backpack is perfect for a laptop or tablet computer while keeping supplies within easy reach. Five exterior pockets (including a lunch money pocket and water bottle holder) plus an ID holder (print your child’s ID online) help your little one stay organized. Made of durable, water-resistant 600-denier material, this schoolbag is made to last and is cool-looking, too!

The donated bag filled with school supplies is also designed with children in mind, and yellow serves as the international color of caution, as many children walk miles to school, along busy roads and highways. The bag is also made with 600-denier material. These schoolbags and supplies have already been donated to children in India, Thailand and Belize with many more locations and countries to come.

With new collections, line extensions and other products in development, Schoolbags for Kids keeps their One Here. One There.™ mission at its forefront. The vision is simple, to provide kids around the world with the tools they need to empower themselves through education.
