I-DJ

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Lesbian+Gay, Festival
Written by Gregg Barrios, Directed by Greg Hinojosa

I-DJ is a story of Warren Peace aka Amado Guerrero Paz, a gay Mexican American youth who finds his calling as a DJ.  He spins the soundtrack of his life on the dance floor by night and by day in a gay send-up of Shakesqueer's Ham-a-lot set to a dub-step beat of ecstasy, tainted love, Rollerena and Herb Alpert. When a younger DJ challenges him to a musical standoff, their stories and their music collide. Only one will emerge triumphant.
