For Immediate Release:
Latino filmmaker will present award-winning film at UW-Green Bay
Nebot is a renowned actor in his native Spain and in Latin America. He starred in the popular television series "La Loba Herida" and "Divina Obsesion," distributed by Warner Brothers International in nearly 30 countries. He came to the United States to broaden his career and started Zocalo Entertainment to produce films geared to the growing Latino audience in the U.S. He is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts of Madrid (Spain) and the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute of New York.
Nebot also stars in "No Turning Back," the story of a Honduran English professor who, through a series of events beyond his control, winds up as a farm worker in California forced to take desperate measures to secure a better life for the one thing he values most of all-his young daughter. Nebot based the film on a story given him by a guerilla journalist who had covered a similar event.
The film showing at UW-Green Bay is sponsored by the student group, OLA (Organización Latino Americana), and is the first in a semester-long series of programs presented under the umbrella title, The Human Mosaic.
