Today we talk with filmmaker and actress Eli Zavala about her new film, El Carrito! Eli plays Nelly, a tamale street vendor in Queen’s New York that lives with her elderly father. The only way she makes ends meet is by working from dawn to dusk. She has learned not to trust anyone until one day she is forced to take a leap of faith or be resigned to her position forever. Eli Zavala is performer, producer, and media entrepreneur. She was born in Mexico but lives in NYC where she founded La Filmadora, a home for storytellers of unappreciated backgrounds. She is also the Chairwoman of a non for profit with the mission of bringing better representation and fighting misrepresentations of minorities on the screen.
