Rich Kids is a film that sympathetically views the modern-day and ongoing challenges of economic disparities, gentrification, displacement and evictions through the lens of Latino and Afro-Latino American youth. Matías is a bright teenager whose family struggles with harsh financial troubles. When he discovers “Los Ricos,” a wealthy family, are out of town, Matías breaks into their mansion, where he and his friends spend an afternoon basking in the good life. The party is soon disrupted when a trouble-making relative shows up uninvited. At its heart, Rich Kids is about a young man’s transformation from the person he thinks he’s supposed to be into the person he really is, as he comes to terms with the realities and consequences of living in a community ravaged by the wealth gap and income inequality.
Laura Somers (Director, Producer, and Co-Writer),David Saldaña (Co-Writer & Co-Producer), Eddie Rodriguez (Producer), and Justin Rodriguez (Cast) will participate in a Q&A following the screening.
