When a Mexican American couple moves into a trendy, gentrifying LA neighborhood, two hipsters invite themselves over to offer a “warm welcome.” But as the night goes on, it’s clear these neighbors are not what they seem: cold pressed, cold brewed, and cold blooded.

Director’s Statement

I live in Los Angeles, where gentrification and the urban displacement of Latino communities are huge problems, further exacerbated by the housing crisis. My co-writer Bill (the other evil hipster) and I decided to make a comedy thriller about gentrification because even though the film’s subject matter is very serious, we love that comedy has the power to deliver messages in a more palatable way. Hopefully by getting viewers to root for our heroes and laugh at/hate the hipster villains, some might reflect on the role they themselves play in urban displacement.
