KILLER - a short film written & directed by Jack Pettibone Riccobono ('03) & Adam Leon - will screen at the HBO Latino Film Festival in NYC on Friday, July 30th and Sunday, August 1st. Set in 1989 NYC, the film follows 17-year-old Jose Ortiz (Xavier Pena), a high school kid obsessed with an intense, dangerous game called KILLER. Based on a real game still played in New York today, KILLER is a glimpse into an urban rite of passage and features a young cast of newly discovered talent. KILLER premiered as one of six shorts selected for the New Directors / New Films Series at the Museum of Modern Art & Lincoln Center, and won Best Short at the Nantucket Film Festival.
