Stanley Stevenson is a widower on his way to celebrate the anniversary of the day he met his deceased wife Clara. Each year he goes back to the same spot, a bench in Washington Square Park and eats the same sandwich, hot roast beef, he had that day. When he reaches the bench he finds a woman crying and decides to cheer her up. Between hilarious banter of shared interests of love, food and NY they develop a bond. July 15th deals with the theme of true love and how it is effected by death

I've really enjoyed my MFA program at Temple studying film. I am preparing to shoot my thesis film over the next year. In one week I'll be in Tennessee, to shoot the first segment of Ayayay! with my brother, Brian as the lead actor. Ayayay! will be an experimental narrative feature film targeting a theatrical release and portrays a couple of Colombian immigrants in an imagined version of rural Tennessee. A brother visiting his sister becomes estranged from her and homeless and communicates with body language, encouraging other people around him into new forms of communication. Themes of the film include belonging and home, language and understanding.
I grew up as a half Colombian right where we will be shooting in rural Tennessee. We will be working with local non-actors - the kind of people you don't normally see in the movies- as well as some actors, such as Brian Jordan Alvarez and his friend the actor, Daniele Watts.
I am currently working to raise $9,500 in support of this segment of the project. Thus far we have raised $6,300 but with two weeks remaining before production begins, it is critical that we raise the remaining $3,200. We are looking for official financial supporters of the film. Any amount is appreciated, and you will be thanked in the credits and on the film website. Additionally, donations are tax deductible, as our fiscal sponsor is the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. You can make a tax-deductible donation at the button on this page: http://ayayayohmy.weebly.com/donate.html
*If you know of any other supporters of the arts that would like to make a donation, please feel free to forward this to your friends and family. In addition to funding, we are looking for an original salsa or merengue song. If you know of anyone recording their own music who would be willing to let us use it have them email me their song at Catalinafilm@gmail.com
