Filmmakers Ashley Soto Paniagua, Dani Adaliz talk with Jesus Figueroa, @ThisFunktional of, about series CHUCHI & ADALIZ, premiering at SXSW.

Set in the Bay area, buddy comedy CHUCHI & ADALIZ is a five episode single-camera digital series that follows childhood besties who, despite having a shared racial and ethnic identity as AfroPuerto Ricans, couldn’t be more different than each other as adults. When Adaliz loses her high powered corporate job in San Francisco and moves in with Chuchi in Oakland, the audience watches avatars of San Francisco (Adaliz) and Oakland (Chuchi) and how their socioeconomic differences shape behavior, as San Francisco is 54.4% more expensive to live in than Oakland. They're in for a rude awakening when they realize that what brought them together as kids isn't enough to keep them together as adults.
