Juan Andrés Arango's La Playa D.C., is getting a special one-week theatrical run here in NYC, starting this Friday, following Chicago playdates.

It'll run at the Rerun Theatre in Brooklyn, from July 19 to 25.

The drama centers on Tomas, an Afro-Colombian teenager struggling with the difficulties of growing up in a city (Bogota) of exclusion and racism against those who look like him; When his younger brother disappears, Tomas is forced to leave his home to look for him. With the help from his older brother Chaco, Tomas roams the city's streets, as his search becomes more of a journey in which he's forced to face his past, and to leave aside the influence of his brothers in order to find his own identity.

It's a quiet, contemplative coming-of-age drama that was also acquired by ArtMattan Films, the company handling the film's release.

Luis Carlos Guevara stars as Tomas, Andrés Murillo plays younger brother Jairo, and Jairo James Solis plays older brother Chaco.

The special one-week engagement playdate information follows below:
