Standard Fantastic Pictures collaborates with contemporary artists to produce films in Tijuana & San Diego.
Currently in post-production is the feature length film: Ana, Who They Pulled Out of the River; shot in Black & White 16mm film, with an All-Woman cast, on location in Tijuana, Mexico.
Avoiding Tijuana's tired tropes -- drugs, prostitution, & the border -- Ana offers a simultaneously mythical & more accurate version of a city whose treasures are the intimate personal narratives she holds.
Ana Who They Pulled Out of the River was produced in part by a grant from the Avery-Tsui Foundation, as well as support from individual donors.

Standard Fantastic Films have screened at San Diego Art Institute, La Jolla Athenaeum, SD Underground Film Festival, Moxie Theatre, A Ship in the Woods, & For Your Art Beverly Hills.
