2012 Reel Rasquache Art & Film Festival

LOST ANGELES WARD – an original webseries by Safada Y Sano Productions Created by Richard Montes and Jade Puga to screen at the  2012 Reel Rasquache Art & Film Festival.   The Festival runs May 18 – 20, 2012. 


Lost Angeles Ward takes a hard look at life in the sometimes glamorous but always gritty Los Angeles California to reveal the stories overlooked when the silver screen goes blank and Hollywood -the capitol of illusions- clashes with the endless supply of ever pumping lost souls- made of young and old, rich and poor- whose journey into the Ward came at price. Beyond the Hollywood glitz and glamour lies a graveyard of lost souls and fallen angels.
