2015 Horrible Imaginings 1st Annual Horror For Humanity Showcase: Se Busca!

tires

Country of Origin: San Diego-Tijuana Local Spotlight!

Based on a true story, ‘Se Busca’ explores through a series of minimalist tableaus the issue of human trafficking, where hope meets deceit.

"Often I hear how people reject the horror genre because there is already 'so much horror in the world,' or 'if I want horror I will just watch the news.' Those statements fail to take into account the concept that filmmaking is an art that can exist to help us discuss and begin to deal with real-world horrors. The news is meant to inform, but it does little to react to real-world issues on a more personal level. That's what film is for. Horrible Imaginings is proud to announce the start of a new endeavor we are calling "Horror for Humanity": an initiative to showcase, and eventually help fund, different films that choose to look at some of the darkness of existence and channel that darkness through creative expression. Thank you for joining me in expanding what we can do with genre cinema!"

-Miguel Rodriguez, director of the Horrible Imaginings Film Fesitval

"Se Busca" will be featured during the "Horror for Humanity" Short Film Block, starting at 4:45pm on Saturday, September 12th!

Director Bio: Alfredo Morales

Alfredo Morales is an amateur horror film maker who for the past two years has hosted his own horror film festival at his high school in order to showcase his work in the macabre and suspense, now recently graduated he moves up in the world of terror cinema with his short film Sleepwalker, premiering at a legit film festival this time. The Horrible Imaginings in his home town of San Diego, California. He is currently looking for a job to pay for his future spine tingling projects.

Director’s Statement:

Sleepwalker was born out of the frustration and anger I had pent up when all my friends and family members where making fun of my first short, Dog Man. I angrily typed up the first draft of Sleepwalker, based on an idea I scribbled down in my drawing journal, and then got to work on a storyboard. Now what I present to you is a short that has all my efforts and the efforts of my crew melded together into a film experience that will shock you and take your breath away.
