Ricardo Islas answers your questions on horror films!


Ricardo Is the director of the upcoming independent horror feature ‘Bachelors Grove’. Bachelors Grove Cemetery is widely known as one of the top ten scariest places in America, and Ricardo’s film is the first film ever made about the infamous location. Ricardo will be on hand to speak about the making of the film, and where it can be seen, and he will also present clips from the movie. Ricardo will also talk about what it takes to be an independent filmmaker in Chicago, and how he has persevered to continue to create films without having to compromise his artistic integrity.

Online registration link to come shortly! $5 at the door.  Free for CSN members.
