The Frida Cinema

Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival

The Candle Thief

Join us on Thursday, July 15th at 7:30pm for a night of true indie filmmaking as local writer/director and long-time Frida Cinema supporter Tony Ochoa invites you to the premiere of his new short film The Candle Thief.

The night will showcase two short films. The first is Tony’s 2019 short You Know My Name: After passing out from a jog, Thora notices that her life has suddenly changed. Her car, her home, her family, all gone. It is up to her to figure out how she is going to continue on with her life.

After a quick presentation, The Candle Thief will be shown. Brewster Parsons & Lauren Corona star in a post-modern Drama about a man seeking company from a sex worker. After being evicted from his apartment, our lead goes on a spiritual journey. Times are hard and he only has his wits and brain to make it through these dark days. Shot entirely in beautiful Downtown Santa Ana!
