Richard Montoya at Sundance Screenwriters Workshop

Got the new Culture Clash newsletter today. This bit of excellent news stood out:
Richard is currently at the Sundance Screenwriters workshop working on the film version of his play.
That would be last season's hit at the Mark Taper Forum, Water and Power. I told Richard at the time that it would make a great movie. The themes are universal, and the geo-specific references to LA and So Cal are explained gracefully or are obvious in context. He said he was going to try to get into the Sundance Workshop, and I congratulate him for his success. It will be a terrific film.

Culture Clash's first hit play at the Mark Taper Forum was Chavez Ravine, the story of the immigrant community that once existed on the site that is now Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
