Encino, California–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–April 15, 2003–Oxxo Films announces the release of its next film project titled, “Isela.” This is the first volume of a 12 title collection. The collection has been named, “Confessions of Latina Women.” Mexican feature films currently enjoy high visibility in the United States. This multi-film project is a result of curiosity by the viewing public and its demand for provocative programming. This collection is a first for this particular segment of home video programming targeting the U.S. Hispanic/Latino market. Each title in the collection recounts the stories of Mexican women in their monotonous lives while invoking their sexuality. The women suffer the consequences of their choices based on their social, economic, cultural, and moral standing. Each individual title within the collection includes women from varying levels of society. Mexican society is very diverse, open minded, and free spirited, and yet sexually repressive. Characters will include poor, rich, married, divorced, widowed, young, old, moral and immoral women.
“Isela” is scheduled to be released on May 7th, 2003. The second title, “Silvia” is scheduled for a June release. A third title, “Isabel” is in post-production. All titles are classified in the drama genre and are intended only for mature audiences. The collection will be launched in VHS and DVD formats and will include English subtitles. The collection is intended to reach and penetrate the Latino/Hispanic market as well as the general U.S. home video market.
