About the Film:

Part of Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival 2019

Presented by: Bank of Hawaii Foundation

Directed by John Butler. Ireland. 2018. 98 min.
When Sean (Matt Bomer), a single TV weatherman living in Los Angeles, is put on gardening leave from work, he quickly realizes that solitude doesn’t exactly suit him. Driving past a hardware store, he spies Ernesto (Alejandro Patiño), a middle-aged Latino migrant with a friendly face, and hires him to do some home repairs. Despite the language barrier, the two men develop an unexpected but profound friendship based on the everlasting need for connection. Papi Chulo is a heartfelt comedy and a fresh take on the buddy movie that explores communication across clear racial and socio-economic lines, in one of the biggest cities on earth.
