synopsis
MOSQUITO is about humiliation and redemption - the coming of age story of Cesar, a 13-year old Dominican boy whose awkward bravado and fanciful imagination have earned him the nickname Mosquito. On a memorable Halloween night in 1974, Cesar fights to win the respect of his teenage tormentors.

director
First-time writer/director Jeremy Engle, born and raised in NYC, has been a public school teacher and educator for more than 10 years, teaching history and documentary video making to teenagers and adults. He has worked with schools and teachers across the country to develop more interactive and youth-centered approaches to learning. He recently completed the feature-length screenplay HALF LIFE - which is also told through the eyes of young kids growing up in NYC in the 1970's.
Filmography   

filmmaker's note
MOSQUITO captures the gritty look and feel of NYC in the 70's through the documentary lens of Sundance Cinematography Award winner Ferne Pearlstein (Imelda, 2004). Alejandro Polanco, star of the critically acclaimed film Chop Shop, leads the ensemble cast.
