Over the summer, writer, actor, director and Emmy-winning producer Eddie Mujica let us know about his latest video project, called DREAMER.
According to Mujica, DREAMER “is based in part on my experience in Hollywood as a light-skinned Latino and deals with the timely issues of immigration, DACA, and the literal ‘Dreamers.’ Set in the near-future, a Latino comes home one day to discover he’s been replaced by a “whiter” version of himself. This dark, satirical short draws influence from Black Mirror, Get Out and The Matrix.
Mujica wrote the story and plays the main character. A Cuban-American from Miami, Mujica is a Second City alum, as well as an alum of the 2016 CBS Diversity Showcase and the 2017 NBC Late Night Writers Workshop. He has produced videos for Broadway Video’s Más Mejor and curates a monthly all-Latinx variety show at Second City Hollywood.
