Tio Papi Event

Presented by the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and Lehman College in association with the Latin Media & Entertainment Commission in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month

In an effort to allow resident opportunities to see productions hosted in their neighborhoods, the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and Lehman College, in association with Latin Media & Entertainment Commission, will present a screening of TIO PAPI (also known as Uncle Daddy), a film shot entirely in Washington Heights and featuring local small businesses like The Coral Restaurant. The screening, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Lehman College Multimedia Center, Carman Hall, the Bronx, on Wednesday, September 25 at 6:00pm. Present for a Q & A after the screening will be writer/producer/actor Joey Dedio and other members of the cast and crew. Synopsis:

It was a bachelor’s life for hard-working and fun-loving Ray Ray Dominguez (Joey Dedio) who dreams of leaving the barrio for a more carefree existence in Miami. That’s until one day when everything changed – and he became a reluctant “Tio Papi” aka Uncle Daddy to his sister’s six children ages six to 16. Now, in charge of raising this energetic (and expensive) clan, Ray Ray must make important decisions on what life really is all about. Combining heart-warming drama with light-hearted comedy, TIO PAPI, directed by Fro Rojas from the original screenplay by Joey Dedio and Brian Herskowitz, is an upbeat story of life’s unexpected surprises and ultimately what matters the most – the love of family.
