The multi-faceted Bobbito Garcia gives an inside look on his life journey and all the different career ventures that made him the cultural icon that he is today in his new film, Rock Rubber 45s.
This past Thursday, the documentary was screened at the Metrograph Theatre in New York City, where Garcia and the film’s producer, Omar Acosta, were present to join in on the experience. The film, directed by Garcia himself, follows the different chapters in his life, providing the viewer with an inside look on his connections with the people that are closest to him. Garcia recalls his upbringing in New York City as a Puerto Rican kid with immigrant parents and his love for basketball. His athletic career taught him valuable life gems that he then took with him whilst pursuing his careers in coaching, designing, and his various titles in the entertainment industry.
The cinematography and production on the piece were very intriguing, with the inclusion of tons of old photos, video clips and pieces of writing that have followed Garcia throughout his lifetime and attributed to his memoir-like film. Anyone who is a fan of the work Garcia has done should take the time to watch, for it provides a lot of insight on the choices he has made to advance his careers and build his own empire.
