Arlington filmmaker makes it to HBO


An Arlington resident’s short film is now available to stream on HBO. Via Bia is a Latina screenwriter who hopes to make the world a better place by telling authentic stories about Latin Americans.

“These Colors Don’t Run,” inspired by Via’s own childhood, is about a young girl on the day of her first communion who breaks a promise to her mother to keep her white dress clean before her big ceremony.

“When my director of photography was talking about the empty lot and why did I choose it, I was like, ‘I had an empty lot across the street and I had a store, like, two blocks from my house,” said Via.

Via’s film will be on HBO until October.
