Cement Suitcase – A Little Wine for the Soul

Scenic vistas of mountain landscapes and surrounding hills nestle close to surround a beautiful, bountiful, rural valley area.  Blessed with vegetables and fruit trees, livestock, hops, and the booming industry of vineyards, the Yakima Valley in Washington State seems a long way from the bright lights of Hollywood and the L.A. film industry.  But sometimes, paths cross and amazing things can happen right in your own backyard.

Such was the case with J. Rick Castañeda’s film Cement Suitcase.  Rick is a Yakima Valley native who traveled from L.A. to return to his roots and create his first Indie Feature Film using the valley as the setting for his homegrown tale.  With the film now touring select Film Festivals and winning multiple awards, I was able to catch up with Rick, find out about his journey in a film career, and him being the first filmmaker to feature the stunning Yakima Valleyhome to not only Rick, but myself as well!  Read more

What is it about the Irish?  I swear it’s not on purpose, but for some reason I continue to find the most interesting people to Feature who just happen to hail from the Emerald Isle!  Aindrias de Staicand the band, The Latchikos, are no exception.

With St. Partick’s Day upon us, I thought this Galway based band would be a great fit to celebrate the holiday.  Although there are no leprechauns, you may certainly find these boys worthy of a pot of gold.  Read more
