| ALUMNUS: FREDERIK HAMEL
In just one summer, Frederik Hamel was a regular tap dancer in the subway stations of Paris, performed at cabarets and jazz clubs around Paris, joined a breakdancing performance troupe, and starred in a French indie thriller movie which was nominated for film festivals around the world. For this alumnnus of CSULA's Department of Theatre Arts & Dance, it was just another summer. Hamel remembers his time at Cal State L.A. as an eye-opening transformation. Originally from France, Hamel came to the States after his love of theatre won out over a pre-destined course to study medicine in college. In France, at a school of medicine, he would not have been able to pursue theatre even as an extracurricular hobby. Luckily for CSULA, Hamel was not willing to give up his love of theatre. After earning his BA from Cal Lutheran University, Hamel says, "I was just a white guy coming from the epitome of the suburban school, and having then recently moved from France, I had developed a certain image of the United States. It was an image I was glad to dispel by attending Cal State L.A. for my Master's degree." The diversity of CSULA created the context for some of his fondest memories. Hamel says, "Amongst faculty, students, and everyone, there are so many unique personalities and talents." Since his graduation in 2006, Hamel has been happily busy. He played a role in the French thriller movie "Surface Sensible," selected for the Newport Beach Film Festival and the Houston World Fest. He booked his first SAG gig as a co-star on one episode of "Girlfriends" on UPN 13. Just recently, he acted in a short film with Ed Asner and Faye Dunaway, which was written and produced by Jonathan Amaret, a CSULA Film Alumni. Hamel also played a principal role for one episode of "Mind of Mencia." He has recently enjoyed a nice side-industry for himself doing voiceover dubbing of English films for a French audience. A memorable career moment for Hamel occurred as he stood in front of the Eiffel Tower, breakdancing with a troupe of
French street-performance artists. In the middle of the set, the
crowd suddenly erupted in a roaring cheer. Hamel stopped. He recalls thinking, "Wow, I must be
doing really great," but then he turned around and saw that the Eiffel Tower light show had begun. He says, "I had to laugh." He laughs again, with a balanced self-consciousness of himself and his omnipresent role as a performer. Hamel says he is most proud of not giving up. He encourages other actors to think about their goals, saying "if what you really, really want is to be an actor, and if you think you got what it takes, don't give up." But how do you know if you've got it? Hamel is familiar with this eternal self-questioning of the artist. But he has chosen his critics. "Half the time you'll think you suck, and half the time you'll think you're fantastic, and as for who you listen to, you need to determine that for yourself and stick with it," he says. Hamel is currently starring as Romeo in William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," produced by Dog Under the Olive Tree and directed by Louis Fantasia at the MET Theatre in Hollywood, opening February 26. Cal State L.A. students receive a $5 discount with student ID. The MET Theatre is located at 1089 N. Oxford Ave., Hollywood, CA 90029. "Romeo and Juliet" opens Thursday, February 26, 2009 at 7 p.m., and runs through Sunday, April 5. Show times: Thurs. at 7, Fri. & Sat. at 8, Sun. at 3.

NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS
The 6th annual Reel Rasquache Festival of the U.S. Latino Experience in Film & Art-- a West Coast celebration of films and artworks by and about U.S. Latinos -- will be held May 15-17, 2009, at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at California State University, Los Angeles. The Festival will showcase an array of recent U.S. Latino-produced and themed films from across the nation.Together with guest filmmaker presentations, panels, and workshops, the Festival provides a unique West Coast celebration of films by and about U.S. Latino communities, perspectives and experiences. The Festival will showcase a rich array of genres from feature-length narrative and documentary films to shorts. The 2009 Festival theme - Reel Visions - celebrates the ways U.S. Latinos are harnessing the winds of change through film, video and digital technologies, utilizing their creative visions to shape the perceptions of Latinos worldwide through their images.Reel Rasquache* is designed to involve the University's neighboring communities of East Los Angeles, and to bring together a broad base of grassroots, professional and university community members with U.S. Latino filmmakers and entertainment industry executives. Call for EntriesFilmmakers are invited to submit films that represent Reel Visions of the rich diversity of Latino experiences in the U.S. on any topics, in all genres, and in a variety of presentations -including animation, documentary, experimental, features, and shorts. Film submissions will be accepted through March 13.Original art works are invited that convey the year's theme: Reel Visions. The top winning art entry will serve as the branding image for the 2009 Reel Rasquache Festival in all 2009 Festival publicity, promotion, and marketing materials to include website, display ads, promotional videos, postcards, posters, lamp post banners and the Festival program booklet. Art entry applications are being accepted through Monday, March 2.The three-day event will feature screenings, workshops and panel discussions, multimedia/spoken-word, live music, receptions, and other networking opportunities. It will also include the presentation of the 2009 Career Achiever Award. Past Festival awardees include: Director, Miguel Arteta (Star Maps, Chuck & Buck), Actor, Lupe Ontiveros (Desperate Housewives, Real Women Have Curves), Actor/Writer/Producer, Evelina Fernandez (Luminarias), Producer/Director, Moctesuma Esparza (Walkout, Selena), Actor, Lupita Tovar (Dracula, Spanish 1931), Director, Lourdes Portillo (Corpus, Señorita Extraviada / Missing Young Woman), Director, Robert M.

Reyes (Empire, Illegal Tender, The Ministers).*RASQUACHE is a term that has been used derogatorily to demean that regarded as cheap or "low class." Reel Rasquache turns such negative meanings upside down to honor the cultural landscape and politics of latinidad in the U.S. - down-to-earth, resourceful, creative, yet historically demeaned by mainstream society. As much as film and television have been powerful tools for perpetuating stereotypes of what Latinos are not, so too do film and television provide effective tools for breaking those stereotypes and representing the many real and rich dimensions of the U.S. Latino experience. It is this empowering sense of the word "rasquache" that the Reel Rasquache Festival celebrates.For information on how to submit a film or enter the art contest and download submission forms, visit the Reel Rasquache website at www.reelrasquache.org.FESTIVAL DATES: May 15, 16, & 17, 2009LOCATION: The Intimate Theatre at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State L.A.
