In director Peter Ohs’ dark supernatural comedy Jethica, Elena (Callie Hernandez) and Jessica (Ashley Denise Robinson) contend with a stalker obsessed with Jessica. When Kevin (Will Madden) arrives unexpectedly at Elena’s late grandmother’s New Mexico desert property, Elena and Jessica join forces against the stalker to spare Jessica a lifetime of harassment. Jethica will screen during this year’s SXSW Film Festival at 2:15 p.m. Friday, March 18 at the Alamo South Lamar. Former Austinite Callie Hernandez launched her acting career with a role in Terrence Malick’s Song to Song that was cut from the final film. She then worked on three Robert Rodriguez projects: Machete Kills, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and From Dusk till Dawn: The Series. After leaving Austin, Hernandez landed roles in La La Land, Blair Witch, Alien: Covenant, The Endless, Under the Silver Lake, One of These Days, and the TV shows Graves, Too Old to Die Young, and Soundtrack.
