The film “Icebox” tells the story of a young boy trapped inside America’s immigration process.
The independent feature film will begin principal photography in the Land of Enchantment this month.
According to the New Mexico Film Office, the feature will be in production through early August in Albuquerque and Española.
“We welcome ‘Icebox’ to New Mexico. In addition to the economic impact for crew and vendors, ‘Icebox’ will employ 40 New Mexicans in principal roles. That is testament to the deep talent pool of actors we have here in our state,” said New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis.
The film follows Oscar, played by Anthony Gonzales. The boy is forced to leave his home country in Honduras and he attempts to reach his uncle in the U.S.
