PRESS

"There's always something lurking beneath the surface in Miami filmmaker Julian Yuri Rodriguez's work. In his second short, Lake Mahar… it's a sense of invasion…. With horror movie tropes and tripped-out editing, Rodriguez gets at the anxieties of white America with a hyper-accelerated rhythm and an insane sense of humor." - VICE

"Julian Yuri Rodriguez stunned audiences... with C#CKFIGHT, a wicked, suspenseful, holy-shit-did-that-really-happen series of events shot in dark, gorgeous detail. Lake Mahar looks to follow that same formula, with added bougie humor." - Miami New Times
