Santana Dempsey is High On Lowlife

Lowlife is a new indie film–a strange, street-smart, and brutal thriller with a Tarantino quirkiness and a Soderbergh multi-story structure–that’s making its mark in U.S. and Canadian film festivals this fall…and SeFijaOnline had a chance to sit down and talk about the making and success of Lowlife with one of its stars.

Santana Dempsey, Lowlife, Nicki Micheaux, Mark Burnhan, Tim Cairo, Jake Gibson, Shaye Ogobonna, Maxwell Michael Towson, Ryan Prows, Brad Munson, Ricardo Adam Zarate, Se Fija Online, Angela OrtizSantana Dempsey, who plays Kaylee, a pregnant, desperate heroin addict who–along with Nicki Micheaux’ Crystal and Mark Burnhan’s Teddy Bear Haynes–set a story of kidnapping, organ theft, sex trafficking and murder into motion…along with a startling and memorable cast of characters that includes a likable ex-con with swastika tattoo that covers his face, a homicidal Luchador wrestler/enforcer who never takes off his mask, and a fake ICE agent who loses a hand and keeps on fighting.

Santana is a key player in Lowlife, who’s been seen in films like Megachurch Murder and French Dirty, as well as episodes of The Newsroom, Kingdom, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and many others. In this interview, she talks about the challenges of her role, how she became part of the project, and the slightly amazing response to it that’s already turning it into a bit of a modern cult classic.

Lowlife, directed by Ryan Prows and written by a five-man team of Tim Cairo, Jake Gibson, Shaye Ogobonna, Maxwell Michael Towson and director Prows, has just found a distributor. We’ll let you know when and where you can see it as soon as the news is released.

Voices for Puerto Rico

More artists and influencers continue to join VOICES FOR PUERTO RICO, a nationwide, grassroots, humanitarian initiative to support for Puerto Rico. Artists Jimmy Smits, Esai Morales, Adam Rodriguez and Marcel Ruiz join their voices alongside Roselyn Sanchez, Luis Guzman, Justina Machado, Lisa Vidal, Ana Ortiz, and Judy Reyes as part of a new PSA campaign for Voices For Puerto Rico. The video campaign aims to create awareness about the economic and humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, in part as a result of hurricane Maria.

Only the Brave in Theaters October 20
