Holy Beasts (Dominican Republic)

A film within a film, a story about a story, the meta thriller Holy Beasts follows an aging former movie star turned director (Geraldine Chaplin) who gets together with a group of fellow artists in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, to complete the unfinished project of their friend, the real-life B-movie filmmaker Jean-Louis Jorge, who was murdered by three teenagers in 2000 at the age of 53.     Written and directed by Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán (Cochochi, Sand Dollars), with a running time of 90 minutes and acted in Spanish and English, the film was shot at the island's Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios and on the plush Casa de Campo Resort.
