Dominican movies are on the rise! Year after year we’ve seen how movies have evolved and how the younger generation is getting more involved. Proof of that is the new Cinematography program at the Altos de Chavón School of Design, wherein the school recently remodeled their facilities to optimize the space for film. Casa de Campo has always been an all time favorite spot for movie production. Last year, “Nadie Muere en Ambrosia” was filmed in Altos de Chavón, and now “Todas las mujeres son iguales” (All Women are the Same) is underway in Casa de Campo with Director David Maler.
David Maler is the son of Argentinian artist, Leopoldo Maler, who has been part of the Casa de Campo community for over 30 years, and David grew up here – which is why we are so excited to see David in action! Now directing his second film, “Todas las mujeres son iguales,” David’s first movie “Reinbou” is currently in the Multiplaza La Romana movie theater. It stars his wife, Nashla Bogaert, along with Frank Perozo, Kenny Grullon, Cheddy Garcia, Enrique Quailey, Iris Peynado, Lia Briones and more!
Also part of this film’s cast is Ettore D’Alessandro, Italian born actor who recently produced and appeared in “Samba”. “Samba” is the first Dominican film to be part of the Tribeca Film Festival, and will have its world premier in the prestigious festival’s “International Narrative Competition” in New York City from April 19th to 30th.
So what do we know about “Todas las mujeres son iguales”? Well, it’s the one we announced an open casting call for just a few weeks ago; and plot-wise we speculate it follows a similar concept to one of last year’s most viewed movies: “Todos los hombres son iguales” starring Christian Meier, Frank Perozo, and Nashla Bogaert. In its Instagram page, you can track its production progress— the release date is set for September 14th, 2017.
We are beyond excited Casa de Campo’s filming is underway and encourage you to stay tuned for more details!! With an incredible cast and production team, we can expect great entertainment this Fall.
