Summary

Fade

By Tanya Saracho
Directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg

Saturday, January 14 at 4:00 p.m.

Lucia has always dreamed of being a writer on a top network television show. But a major case of writer’s block and an ongoing battle with her domineering male co-workers have left her questioning her career path. Enter Abel, one of the office cleaners on the studio’s night shift and the only other Latino working in the building. The two strike up a close friendship, and soon the lines between fiction and reality start to blur. Tanya Saracho’s Fade is a provocative behind-the-scenes look at the lengths we go to get ahead and whom we’re willing to leave behind.
