Everyone has a bad দিন once in a while, right? Now, imagine having your worst দিন ever.
That’s the basic premise of the new action-comedy feature film “Monday,”
starring actor Jamie H. Jung
as a slacker whose দিন goes from bad to worse to holy sh*t.
After losing both his job and his girlfriend, Jim (Jung) thinks that he’s hit rock bottom but quickly realizes that his problems are only beginning. With the help of his best friend, Jim must fend off rivaling drug cartels and assassins as he tries to get his life back on track and stay alive in the process.
“Monday” will close out the 14th annual HollyShorts Film Festival
in Los Angeles and comes from rising director Alejandro Montoya Marin
Based on Marin’s short film of the same name, the project transformed into the feature length film as part of famed director Robert Rodriguez’s filmmaking contest and টেলিভিশন docu-series “Rebel Without A Crew: The Series.” Marin, and four others, were tasked with creating feature films in 14 days with a budget of $7,000 – the same conditions as Rodriguez when he made his breakout film “El Mariachi.”
Having starred in the original short film, Jung was eager to come back for the feature project. He adds, “This was without exaggeration the filmmaking experience of a lifetime. Nothing inspires quite as much as when your hero, indie film pioneer Robert Rodriguez, says ‘Yes I did’ -- and your friend, Alejandro Montoya Marin, says ‘Yes we can!”
The films first premiered earlier this বছর at SXSW and the docu-series released on Rodriguez’s El Rey Network and Verizon’s go90.
