"Without Men" to Premiere at 15th Annual LALIFF

"Without Men," starring the impressive cast of Eva Longoria, Christian Slater, Oscar Nu??ez, Kate Del Castillo, Yvette Yates, Maria Conchita Alonso, Judy Reyes, Monica Huarte, Fernanda Romero and others, will make its red carpet premiere at the 15th Annual Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival this Sunday, July 24 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

Yvette Yates is making her mark in Hollywood in this new comedy written and directed by Gabriela Tagliavini, and based on the international bestseller "Tales From the Town of Widows" by James Canon.

The film is set in a remote Latin American jungle where a group of women are left to fend for themselves after their men leave to fight in a civil war. A battle of the sexes ensues when the men return to reclaim their power.

The theatrical release of "Without Men" will kick off July 29 in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. The series, which will run for seven days in each market, will move onto San Antonio and San Diego on August 5, Dallas on August 12 and San Francisco on Sept. 16.

"In our third year of the film series, Maya Entertainment continues to acknowledge and celebrate Latinos in film by presenting this event for American audiences across the country," Maya Entertainment CEO Moctesuma Esparza said. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Currently, Yvette Yates is filming The Red House, written and directed by Gregory Avellone (debut), which started principal photography two weeks ago. Yates stars as Carissa, a pretty but high maintenance young woman who after being taken captive finds herself in a horrifying situation. Cast includes Kate French (L Word), Brendan Wayne (Cowboys and Aliens), Cristen Coppen (Staunton Hill), and John Otrin (Friday the 13th).

Yates most recent credits include "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell", Rockstars' popular videogame Red Dead Redemption, and award-winning Ni??a Quebrada. She can next be seen in Vin Diesel's original webisode series, "The Ropes," as well as the new film, "Sorority Party Massacre."
