LatinoBuzz: 'Hostile Border' Star Veronica Sixtos on Learning About Herself from Playing

25 April 2016 6:19 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

I screened "Hostile Border" (Fka "Pocha, Manifest Destiny") at Urbanworld Film Festival (www.urbanworld.org) last September after hunting it down for what felt like an eternity having followed the project since its audition process. Not only did Veronica charm fellow filmmakers and audiences alike, she gave an understated and captivating performance that carried the film effortlessly. One that should take the young Cali Latina to dizzying heights. 

Read More:How Dir. Michael Dwyer Devised a Neo-Western About a Conflicted Pocha in 'Hostile Border'

LatinoBuzz: Is there an artist whose career you greatly admire?

Veronica Sixtos: I greatly admire Jennifer Lawrence's career. She was put on the map by her performance in an indie film called Winter's Bone. Knowing that gives me faith that I can lead a similar path. I can tell that she puts everything she has into giving the audience the most honest performance that she can. I adore her for her bravery in letting go. She chooses her roles wisely and she's not afraid push the limits. I love that. I also love how she presents herself in public. Whether it's a TV interview, red carpet, or a tweet, she is not afraid to be herself and I think that makes her so unique.

LatinoBuzz: Does your music help you with your acting and vice versa?

Veronica Sixtos: I was an actress first before I was a musician and songwriter. So what I had learned about letting go and trusting my human instincts in the art of acting I applied to my music. When I write and perform my music I do my absolute best to always come from an honest and sincere place. I imagine it would be more difficult to get to that place if I was not also an actor. During the filming of Hostile Border I would play my guitar and sing my songs during down time. It helped me unwind after an intense day of work. It also helped me to tap into the more emotional side of my character.

LatinoBuzz: Did making Hostile Border help you gain a better understanding of the complexities of the immigration issues?

Veronica Sixtos:: Before making "Hostile Border" I had a limited understanding on the immigration issues today. Being a part of this project has allowed me to gain a lot of insight and perspective on immigration/deportation on a more personal level. One thing that has really stood out to me is the extent of how many people's lives are affected by it and how they are all affected in different ways. 

LatinoBuzz: What was the most important element you wanted to bring to the role of "Pocha"?

Veronica Sixtos: Humanity. I wanted to bring to my character such a level of humanity that the audience would identify with her whether she was making bad decisions or not. I didn't want it to be a performance. I wanted to share with the audience a real human experience.

LatinoBuzz: How did the whole experience of making the film change you in any way?

Veronica SixtosAround the time that I was offered the role of Claudia I was feeling like I was at a stand still in my career and in my life in general. I was tired of living the same routine everyday and auditioning for similar stereotype roles all the time. Without realizing it I was waiting for an opportunity to express my art in such a way that it would make a real impact on people. I wanted to jump into something that had never been done before where I could have the freedom to truly push the boundaries of what is considered correct or acceptable. Playing this role forced me to completely let go of ego. I had to let go of the preconceived ideas of what women in movies are supposed to be like. This was one of the biggest challenges I faced in the making of this film. What I continued to remind myself was that it was not about me... it was about the art, the message, and the experience of the audience. Embodying such a complicated character required for me to delve into the darkest parts of myself in order to portray Claudia in the most authentic way possible. Doing that wasn't easy and I found myself learning a lot about self acceptance and transformation. To this day I am still learning and changing from this experience.

LatinoBuzz: The film first premiered on the east coast at Urbanworld Film Festival and took the jury prize for Best Narrative Feature Film. How was that experience to come to New York for the first time and accept the award?

Veronica SixtosI love New York. Walking the beautiful city streets in designer pumps and dress was like a dream!! What an incredible time I had watching beautiful films and meeting incredibly talented and passionate people at the festival. Seeing Tyrese Gibson watching my movie was an insane surprise. He even stayed for the Q & A and asked me a question! I felt so honored just for him to have seen it let alone hear his thoughts on it. During the awards ceremony I remember looking around and feeling overwhelmed that I was lucky enough to even be there to witness these film makers accept their awards. Which is why I was completely caught off guard when they announced that my film had won the Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative feature film and I was the only one there to accept it! In front of all those people. I was so over joyed that I couldn't stop giggling like a little girl. I'll never forget that experience.

LatinoBuzz:Is there a filmmaker you really want to work with? Put it out there!

Veronica Sixtos: Alejandro G. Inarritu. After watching "The Revenant" I fell in love with this directors work. I started doing research on him and found that we have some things in common! He was born and raised in Mexico (I wasn't but I'm Mexican and I love Mexico!). At a young age he went traveling around the world which he says has heavily influenced him as a filmmaker (I love to travel too!). He is a musical artist and says that music has a bigger influence on him as an artist than film (I can totally relate!). He has a long list of critically acclaimed films and one day I hope to be in one of them. I think we would work really well together. Can someone send him a "Hostile Border" screener???

LatinoBuzz: What's the ultimate game plan for Veronica?

Veronica Sixtos: I love film. I want to keep working on movies and I have high hopes that Hostile Border will bring forth more opportunities for me. Currently I am working on completing my first Ep called Chapters. Eventually it will be available on Itunes and hopefully Spotify etc. I love writing music and sharing it with those who need it. Travel is another one of my passions... I don't quite have a game plan yet on how to accomplish this... but I would like to somehow incorporate travel with music and acting. All in one. That would be my ultimate dream.

33 Times You Wanted Whatever Jennifer Lawrence Was Having

31 March 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

In the six years since Jennifer Lawrence's breakout role in 2010's Winter's Bone, the actress has established herself as the ultimate onscreen badass and Hollywood's most desirable Bff, the combination of which makes her box office and newsstand gold. Even better, her infectious personality isn't a PR product - after all, she was bringing on the Lol-worthy moments way before she got superfamous, and she clearly lacks the filter necessary to emulate anyone else's path to fame. Case in point: her candid interview with Vanity Fair about that nude-photo hacking incident in November 2014, or the way she spoke at length to Glamour about America's misconceptions of her. Let's look back at all the times we could not hide our admiration for the daring A-lister. »

Rosamund Pike gets Phantasmed in New Massive Attack Video

25 February 2016 8:27 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

UK's seminal trip Hop band, Massive Attack, have released a disturbing new video for their single "Voodoo in My Blood" where actress Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Wrath of the Titans) gets assaulted by a floating orb - so, Phantasmed basically.

The song features Young Fathers, Azekel, Roots Manuva, Tricky and 3D and was written and Produced by Robert Del Naja and Euan Dickinson.

When asked about her part in the video Pike said, "Am I involved? ... Someone said the girl in the video looks like me. I have been to the Joe Strummer subway. I did have a strange encounter there once,". She is the second Oscar-nominated star to appear in a Ritual Spirit video: Winter's Bone's John Hawkes previously appeared in the video for the Tricky-featuring "Take It There."

'Birth of a Nation' Wins Big at Sundance; Are 2017 Oscars Next?

1 February 2016 12:50 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 2016 Oscars haven't even happened yet, but based on buzz coming from the Sundance Film Festival, the 2017 Oscars may already have a frontrunner.

"The Birth of a Nation" won big at the annual film festival celebrating independent cinema, claiming both the audience prize and grand jury prize for feature films. The drama tells the true story of Nat Turner, who led a slave revolt in 1831, and was sold for a headline-grabbing sum of $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight, making history as the largest deal in Sundance history.

Sundance has plenty of past success launching Oscar contenders, including recent Best Picture nominees "Brooklyn," "Boyhood," "Whiplash," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Winter's Bone," and "Precious." And according to Variety, it will be hard for the Academy to ignore Nate Parker, who wrote, directed, starred in, and produced the acclaimed flick, ensuring that #OscarsSoWhite will be a thing of the past in 2017.

Sundance 2016: Our picks of the festival

29 January 2016 1:31 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

The sleepy Utah ski resort of Park City explodes into life once again as Hollywood and the world's press bombard its slopes. This is the Sundance Film Festival, which despite its modest indie circuit origins (as the Utah/Us Film Festival in 1978) is now America's foremost film festival, perhaps in industry clout only behind Cannes and Toronto worldwide. Yet its credibility isn't based on big name stars and auteurs, but as the first stop for hot new American filmmaking talent. It's not just the legendary debuts made by Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderbergh that maintain its star ranking for any Hollywood producer - more recent breakthrough films from Debra Granik (Winter's Bone), Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station) and Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) show momentum remains in the snow-tipped peaks of Utah.

DiCaprio, Stallone and More React to 2016 Oscar Nominations

15 January 2016 12:43 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday morning, filmmakers Guillermo del Toro, Ang Lee, actor John Krasinski and Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced the nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards, which will be handed out on Sunday, February 28. An Oscar nomination can be a career-changing moment for any actor, filmmaker or crew member, and whether it's your first nomination (Brie Larson) or your 50th (John Williams... seriously, he has 50 Oscar nominations), it's always a special moment. Entertainment Weekly caught up with several of this year's nominees to get their reactions to the big news.

The Revenant led all movies with 12 nominations, including one for Leonardo DiCaprio as Best Actor. This is his fifth acting nomination, but he has never taken home an Oscar in his storied career. Some think this year might be his best chance to take home that little gold man, but we'll have to wait until February 28 to find out. »

Oscars 2016: Jennifer Lawrence Sets Age Nomination Record

14 January 2016 2:25 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Meryl Streep is the reigning queen of the Oscars, with a record 19 nominations under her esteemed belt. But another actress is on a hot streak that may soon threaten the thespian: Jennifer Lawrence just landed her fourth Academy Award nomination, for "Joy," and with it, the distinction of being the youngest person ever to nab that many Oscar nods.

Lawrence, 25, had previously set a record with her nomination for "American Hustle" two years ago, in which she became the youngest person (at 23) to earn three nominations from the Academy. (Her first two came for 2010's "Winter's Bone" and 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook"; she took home the latter Best Actress trophy.) But the actress keeps besting herself, and at the rate she's going -- four nominations in six years -- it seems plausible that she could surpass Streep's hallowed tally.

For one thing, Lawrence got an earlier start than Streep in »

Jennifer Lawrence Says David O. Russell Would Help Her ‘Hide a Body,’ Which Is Nice, But You Know He’d Make Her Wear a Wig the Whole Time

7 January 2016 9:37 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's very sweet that Joy director David O. Russell would be the first person Jennifer Lawrence would trust if she ever had a dead person on her hands, as she explains in a new interview with Glamour. But can you imagine hiding a body with David O. Russell? You just know he's yelling at you the whole time, telling you to lift with your knees, pointing out when you've got a bad grip on the corpse. Constantly fussing with your wig or making you put on different wigs entirely. Bradley Cooper's there. It's a whole thing. Winter's Bone director Debra Granik, on the other hand — now that's a director who can help you hide a body. The solution is always put it in a lake. »
