Casi Casi

As first-time writers, directors, and producers, Tony and Jaime Valles set out to learn every aspect of the film making process, and along the way create a fully developed independent feature-length film.

CASI CASI is an upbeat, energetic, romantic caper-comedy full of heart. It may be “foreign” film, but its universal themes are accessible to audiences of all backgrounds and nationalities.
