Sebastián Bisbal Rivas,
Austin-based writer/director Sebastián Bisbal Rivas’ short drama Ignition focuses on a preteen boy’s (Chris Carpenter) efforts to build functioning space rockets. Pete’s motivation to successfully launch a rocket into space, though, isn’t an obsession but a coping mechanism. Ignition will screen 12 p.m. May 7 at the Marchesa Hall & Theatre as part of the Cine Las Americas International Film Festival’s Hecho en Tejas shorts package.
