Switch Up with Tara Pirnia, Cristian de la Fuente, Julieth Restrepo, Shondrella Avery, R. Brandon Johnson, and Lorena Gonzalez

Switch Up is a heartfelt, and hilarious rom-com about a man who loses it all, only to renew his sense of purpose, and find family where he least expects. The film deals with loss, homelessness, and second chances, all while making the audience belly laugh. But even more delicious was sitting down with the Director Tara Pirnia and the cast: Cristian de la Fuente (Driven, Menorah in the Middle), Julieth Restrepo (Griselda), Shondrella Avery (Napoleon Dynamite), R. Brandon Johnson (High Voltage), and Lorena Gonzalez (Catrina), who immediately make you feel the warmth of their on-set family that is the heart of the film.
