STARRING: Madison Cheeatow, Sam Robert Muik, Bianca Caroca

SYNOPSIS: Hudson (David Neal Levin) is a man who is somewhat of a recluse and after his mother’s passing, he feels even more disconnected and lost. His distant cousin, Ryan (Gregory Lay), comes to visit him and the two embark on a road trip to scatter the mother’s ashes in the Hudson Valley. Along the way, they pick up a hitchhiker (Mary Catherine Greenawalt) and visit Hudson’s dad who has moved on with life. The cousins visit nostalgic places from their past and dig up old stories from when they were kids. One story, in particular, causes them to confront the truth and it may be why the family is so distant today.
Cuban horror film Is That You? (¿Eres tu, Papá) directed by Rudy Riverón Sánchez was awarded the top jury prize for Best Film at the 2019 Richmond International Film Festival.
