About Blacktino

Year Released:
Comedy, Drama
Blacktino is a dark teen comedy about an overweight half-black, half-Latino nerd named Stefan Daily, who is being raised by his black grandmother in a medium-sized suburb of Austin, Texas. Struggling to find his place in a mostly white high school, Stefan finds sanctuary among the eclectic mix of social outcasts in the school’s theater department. In the tradition of the great teen comedies of the last 30 years Blacktino will ensure that the torch of teen angst continues to burn bright. Winner for Best Director, 2011 New York International Latino Film Festival.
