World Premiere

Green Ghost

Directed by Michael D. Olmos

United States | 78 minutes | 2021

A family of Latinx superheroes must pull together to stop an evil warrior planning to destroy the world.

This is the untold story of the true Maya Apocalypse that has been misinterpreted by scholars and was to have taken place on 12/21/12 - that was obviously wrong. A secret group of Mexican superheroes, known as El Trio de la Luz, are forced by destiny to include their bumbling adopted gringo into their group to join the fight to save humanity. Will the car salesman and local TV personality carry his weight and transform from the GRINGO into the GREEN GHOST?
