Interview: Director Carmen Marron’s Passion to ‘Go For It!’

Chicago – What if you had a deep desire and passion to make a movie? Would you know what to do, how to go about it? Carmen Marron was in that spot seven years ago, with no connections, no clue on how to do it, only that necessary passion and desire. This Friday, her hip-hop dance film, “Go for It!” opens in 250 theaters nationwide.

The extraordinary journey of Carmen Marron is one of grit and determination. She learned the right process of movie making, sought the right advice and knocked on the right doors. She wrote the screenplay, directed the film and took it to the festivals, where it won four audience favorite awards. Lionsgate distributors contacted her last August, and is now releasing Go for It!. Carmen Marron is simply the little engine that could, a monument to the power of a can-do spirit.
