Filmmaker Jonathan Ullman Talks Trouble in the Heights | Reel Life With Jane

By Melanie Votaw I love the opportunity to champion new filmmakers. There are so many wonderful independent films that are seen by too few people, and many of these films are as good, if not better, than the studio movies that get so much attention. One such film is “Trouble in the Heights,” the first […]
