    Carpinteros at Sundance Festival 2016
    Santo Domingo, December 2, 2016

    Carpinteros, a film directed and written by filmmaker José María Cabral will have its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. The film entered the competition in the international section" World Cinema Dramatic Competition "where only 12 films from around the world are selected. This is the first Dominican to participate. Approximately 13,000 films are submitted each year, among 4,000 feature films, only 110-120 are part of the final selection.

    The Sundance Film Festival is headquartered in Park City, Salt Lake City and Mountain Resort in Utah from January 19 to 29. The festival has introduced to the audience great films in the last three decades; including Boyhood, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station,Whiplash,The End of the Tour,Little Miss Sunshine, Reservoir DogsAn Inconvenient Truth, and Napoleon Dynamite.

    "I am very excited to be part of the Festival, I have been following it my entire life; it’s an honor to be taken into account, a dream come true to bring a Dominican film to the Sundance Festival, "said Cabral. “I have to thank everyone who made this possible and above all the great crew and actors of the film who gave their best and congratulate the other selected films, he added."

    "I spent nine months visiting prisons almost every day and getting stories from the inmates. They would narrate and recreate situations and I would give me them the narrative style of cinema, but always with them. I asked them: 'Look, I need the character to do this, what would you do in this scenario, how would you send this message or how you make a woman fall in love', and they would tell me such and such. That way I wrote the film ", acknowledged Cabral.

    With its mid-year release in the Dominican Republic, Carpinteros is about the realities of inmates living in the Najayo Men, Najayo Mujeres and La Victoria jail. Shot in the three prisons of Santo Domingo in May of 2016 with the participation of Jean Jean, Judith Rodríguez, Ramón Emilio Candelario, among others. Most of the actors in the film are the same inmates of each center enriching the raw and real part of the story.
    The process with the actors was the same. Cabral along with Jean Jean, Judith and Ramón did many rehearsals inside the prisons to get into the universe of the film; in addition the rehearsals served as casting, to choose the inmates that would be in the film. Other actors were involved, such as Manuel Raposo, Orestes Amador, Carlota Carretera, Karina Valdez, José Cruz, Aleja Johnson, Mario Nuñez, Fernando de Jesus Mejía, Keunis Alvarez and Cape Ramírez.
    The film is part of the "Zero Copy" selection of Ventana Sur, exclusively to sale agents, distributors and festival representatives, with the presence of its director, producer and screenwriter, José Maria Cabral, where he has caused an excellent impression, receiving formal offers for international distribution.
