EL CULTO - Cast & Crew

Emily Esperanza - Director/Writer/Lead Actor/Editor

Emily was born on the West Coast, grew up in the Southwest, & now lives in Chicago. EL CULTO was born out of a love for collages made of desperate things, interest in the thin veil between worlds, her cultural upbringing, years of confusion and faux-insanity, and lots and lots of PASSION. She is now working desperately to raise money to finish the film in time. Help her out by clicking this button: CLICK ME.
