The Dominican director Ronnie Castilloknown for directing the film “Who’s in charge?”, has made France his second home for three years, which has opened an important door for film collaboration between the Dominican Republic, his native country, and his new residential and work place.
It was in the midst of the pandemic in 2020, while filming the film “Dragonfly” with Judith Rodríguez and Pepe Sierra, a film that is currently in post-production, that the renowned Dominican director was presented with the opportunity to go to this new destination, which that opened up a new range of possibilities not only for him as a creator, but also for the beginning of what today is a constant production of Dominican films with the collaboration of French actors and producers, giving a new direction to his projection and to Creole cinema itself. .
In 2021, he concluded the filming of his first film project in collaboration between both countries with the film “Au Revoir” which featured the participation of the prominent actor Jimmy Jean Lois, and actors of the stature of Jalsen Santana and Chrystel Saint-Louis Agustin, with the co-production of Leticia Brea and Jalsen (Less is more productions), meaning a giant step for Ronni, who had the collaboration of the French Brittany film commission, specifically from the Rennes region, having the support of production houses and post-production studios in France for this Dominican film that will soon hit theaters.
From there the doors were opened for new projects such as the recent filming in the Dominican Republic of the biopic based on the life of tennis player Victor Estrella Burgos, with performances by Yasser Michelen, Hemky Madera, Jalsen Santana, Lía Briones and Diego Vicos. Produced by Boleca Films, María Consuelo Bonilla and Leticia Camarena.
Currently Ronni, who is in the country giving the final touches to these shoots, while developing a new project hand in hand with Less is More productions, with high expectations and consolidating growth not only in the rising career of this director of ours, but of a greater incidence of our productions in new places of the world.
