By special arrangement Biola Screenings offers a prerelase screening of the major motion picture Little Boy.
Little Boy tells the heartwarming story of a boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II. Set in the 40’s, Little Boy captures the wonder of life and faith through the eyes of a 7-year-old boy. The film explores the meaning of faith in the context of harsh realities whether it be an absent father, bullying by others or the mistreatment of Japanese-Americans. Directed by Smithsonian Institute Award Winning Director Alejandro Monteverde (Bella, 2006), this film will make you laugh, cry and think about what matters most. Little Boy is scheduled for theatrical release April 24.
Alejandro Monteverde is a producer, writer and director, known for his critically acclaimed films Bella (2006), Crescendo I (2011) and Waiting for Trains (2002). He is from Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Alejandro was named as one of “15 Mexican Directors You Should be Watching” by Latina magazine. He met his wife Ali Landry (actress, model and former Miss USA (1996)) at a church Bible study. They married in 2006, have three children and live in Los Angeles.
