As the Latino community continues to showcase its talents and strengths throughout many industries, the selection of Latine films released is also increasing.
One of those films is “Escándalo Secreto: En Plena Cuarentena.” Directed and written by Jorge Cano, this film is categorized as a comedy; it will premiere globally on DistroTV on February 25th.
The cast of “Escándalo Secreto: En Plena Cuarentena,” based on COVID times and set in Bogota, includes Alejandro Gutierrez, Danny Trejo, Ninel Conde, Lina Castrillon, Platanito, and Lorena Herrera. And to up the ante, Esther Anaya is the artist behind the film’s theme song, “009.”
Esther Anaya is a Colombian DJ, singer, songwriter, producer, and violinist. Her talent has taken her to open for globally-known artists, such as Zedd, Lunay, Ricardo Montaner, and DJ snake. Meanwhile, her skills as a violinist have led her to perform alongside Kanye West and Rihanna at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game. She’s also acted as a show opener for Maluma’s European tour and one of Mexico’s most prized singer-songwriters, Ana Gabriel.
Anaya’s music video, “009,” was shot in three different countries and five different cities while the world was undergoing quarantine. She and her crew traveled from New York to Mexico to make their creative vision come to life. Being an expert at painting a picture with the carefully selected tunes and rhythms for her songs, she also paid plenty of mind to the instruments being used for “009.”
In fact, the production was carried out using six different violins, which, in itself, tells a story of its own. The creativity was present in every aspect of the music video, where even the wardrobe showcased its talent; the wardrobe designers created 12 different outfits for this occasion.
As the world awaits a film that prides itself on its comedic relief, we can all catch a glimpse of what’s to be expected throughout the various scenes of “009.”
