Ok, we all know Tony Montana, Rocky Balboa, everybody "Loves Lucy" and "Desi" but how about Tony Capote. As much as his name sounds Italian he is very much Cuban-American, and the story might sound as a reference to Oscar Winning film Cinema Paradiso but it is very much real and very much birthed on the streets of Little Havana, among the scent of Cuban cigars and bitter coffee. This project has become part of our live's and we can only hope that together we can give it life.
Tony Capote, Writer & Director has been on a mission to tell a story thru film that would fill people with optimism, emphasizing the idea that the power of love and respect for one another will be able to conquer all obstacles. This being part of our founding philosophy we set out to create a film that people Internationally will not just empathize with but also identify with the families searching for a better life.
Born and raised in South Florida and cultivated in the theatre by his mother, Arminda Cabrera and father, Pablo Rodolfo Capote, who was a lighting engineer for world-renowned theaters and cabarets in Cuba, Puerto Rico and South Florida. Tony was exposed to the world of theatre from the age of ﬁve. His constant backstage interaction with actors, dancers and performers instilled in him exactly who he has become – a visionary ﬁlmmaker with a transcendent view of life.
'We All Want The Same Thing' is an English-language Latin focused independent feature film set in Little Havana- Miami, Florida.
THE STORY: A diverse Latin community who strives to protect a Brazilian immigrant family from being deported from the United States, which is at times suspenseful, humorous and inspiring. The story is unraveled thru the eyes of a father and son who return to their hometown to start a new life. Through this community we experience a unique tale of love, loss and the struggle for freedom.
As the screenplay progressed we shared it with many family, friends and artists. Most of whom were kind enough to encourage our filmmaking journey and like us believed that we could conquer the impossible.
