at TAMIU Tonight

It started as a student film project and morphed into a 91-minute independent film that profiles the life of a bright and kindhearted young woman trapped in a chaotic household.

“Milagro,” a film by Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) senior José Luis Montoya will be presented Thursday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the TAMIU Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Recital Hall. The film is in Spanish and subtitled in English.     Admission is free of charge and open to the public.

Montoya wrote and directed the film shot in its entirety in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, México, using high definition video with Dolby digital 5.1 surround sound audio.

The story is a combination of heartbreaking and uplifting scenes that will leave the viewer with a profound message, that strength lies within them. The film does not contain any obscene language or any sexual content, and contains minimal violence.

Montoya is a psychology major at TAMIU, minoring in creative writing.

Montoya hopes that his future will include additional opportunities to write and perhaps create more films.
