It’s easy to describe Stefan Daily, the lead character in the teen comedy blacktino: He’s a biracial computer nerd. Being raised by his black grandmother in Austin and attending a mostly white high school, Stefan doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere until he finds a haven in the school’s drama department.
Written and directed by Aaron Burns, the film won Best Director in HBO’s New York International Latino Film Festival. blacktino executive producer Elizabeth Avellán and Houston filmmaker Greg Carter will introduce the screening, and participate in a post-screening discussion moderated by Alfred Cervantes, deputy director of the Houston Film Commission.
