Standard Fantastic Studios collaborates with contemporary artists to produce films in Tijuana & San Diego. Currently in production is the feature length film: Ana, Who They Pulled Out of the River; shooting 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.
Thanks to a grant by the Avery-Tsui Foundation, as well as support from individual donors, Ana Who They Pulled Out of the River is currently in production and slated for release in Spring 2018.

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.
