Francisco Lorite’s short film will be screened as part of the NewFilmmakers NY series.
Mediation tells the story of a divorce mediation that spirals completely out of control for a husband (Freddy Rodriguez), his soon-to-be ex-wife (Marley Shelton) and their court-appointed mediator (Marilyn Sanabria). The short, written and directed by Lorite, features television star Freddy Rodriguez (Six Feet Under and Ugly Betty) alongside actress Marty Shelton (Eleventh Hour and Sin City) and Marilyn Sanabria (Between).
