This compelling film chronicles the untold story of the Puerto Rican 65th Infantry Regiment, the only all-Hispanic unit in U.S. Army history. Having performed with distinction early in the Korean War, the Borinqueneers of the 65th would face their greatest challenge in the fall of 1952, when more than 100 soldiers were arrested.

The Shooting Star Salesman


“The Shooting Star Salesman” Trailer from Kico Velarde on Vimeo.

In a modern time, a 19th century ageless Salesman is granted the magical ability to align individuals with their own unique shooting star to wish upon. His rare gift becomes a curse when he outlives his family, turning him into a recluse and breaking the magic of the shooting star machine. As he ventures out to restore people’s belief in shooting stars, he picks up a curious 8 year old tag along named Elijah, who starts to question if perhaps it’s the Salesman himself who needs to have his faith restored. An unlikely partnership is formed as they embark on a journey to restore the faith of humanity. But as their friendship grows, the Salesman is torn between continuing his legacy or renouncing his magical gift for the chance to reunite with the family he lost a lifetime ago.
