"Coleman Miller is destined for admiration and great poverty."
- Isabella Rossellini

Yowza! I can deal with the admiration part but the poverty is just getting old.

This is my found footage film that won awards all over the globe a few years ago.
Uso Justo was a crowd favorite at every fest it played. Won numerous audience awards and a couple Best of the Fests. (Ann Arbor & Humboldt County).
In short, I took an old mexican melodrama from the 50's and reworked it into a narrative about an experimental filmmaker making his next film in the town of Uso Justo (Roughly translated: Fair Use)
