Two vampires thought their 11-year-old little brother, Angel, died in San Francisco’s 1906 earthquake. Now, more than a century later, they discover that Little Angel is still alive. The boy vampire brings Laura, his mortal caretaker, to a family reunion which quickly becomes a bloody feast. When one of the older brothers makes an inappropriate move on Laura, the gathering takes a nasty turn. And the fight triggers a major turning point in the relationship between Little Angel and his human companion.
As a child growing up in East Los Angeles, Wonien Garcia was a big fan of comic books and dreamed of owning his own comic book shop one day. He also enjoyed movies and saw hits like ‘Terminator 2’ and ‘Star Wars’ over and over.
In high school, influenced by films like ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘Clerks’, Wonien started writing his own screenplays for fun in English class. But everything changed when he saw the bittersweet love story ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.’ That masterpiece made him want to become a filmmaker.
Wonien hopes to be fortunate enough to follow in the footsteps of his favorite writers Neil Gaiman and Brian K. Vaughan. He also credits the visual talents of Martin Scorsese, Guillermo del Toro and John Carpenter as his biggest influences.
‘Little Angel’ is the second short film he has written and directed.
