División Del Norte began in Room 161 in South-Central Los Angeles' iconic Thomas Jefferson High School, as Steve Bachrach, Carmela Perez, Ceindy Mata, Abraham Osuna, Marlem Landa, and a few others traded stories about people we knew and things we'd witnessed. Since then we've been working with local partners and amazing advisors at the Sundance Institute to bring these tales to the screen.

Our first film, the short "Dogs & Tacos", depicts a typically hectic afternoon and evening in the life of high school student/big sister/taqueria employee Alma Pantaleon (Venecia Troncoso). "D&T" has to date played at over 20 festivals in the U.S., México, Chile & Colombia, with a Brazilian premiere coming up this November.

Our next project is the action-packed feature-length version of Alma's story, "Pueblo Venenoso".
