Local filmmakers often get overlooked. They don't always get as much attention as local bands, artists or politicians. And that's a shame. But here's a chance to remedy that: head to the premiere of "The Last Intervention," a Hartford-based story of Melky (played by Alyssa Abreu), a "misunderstood, 18-year-old chica trying to find her place in the world," who's faced with an "intervention" staged by her divorced Dominican parents. Her dad, Cheche (played by Hemky Madera, pictured), swears he's not going to lose her to "drugs or to booze or to boys that do not know how to wear pants." Guests at the premiere will get to talk shop with director/producer Giovanny Blanco, writer/producer Sarah Thorp, producer Rafael Blanco and directory of photography Daniel Salazar III, and will likely get a chance to hobnob with a number of the actors.
