We’re proud to announce Michael Reventar’s CSA nomination in the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his portrayal of Rico in Kidnap Capital.
The Canadian Screen Awards are Canada’s primary national awards program, aiming to highlight the work of the most talented professionals working in Film and Television in Canada today.
Michael Reventar’s nomination is a testament to his intense, dedicated performance as an ex gang member from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, who gets tortured for ransom in an Phoenix Drop House, after getting kidnapped in the Arizona desert as he entered the US illegally. His performance stands out with feeling and realism, even as part of an terrific ensemble cast that brings high dramatic weight to an independent film like no other to come out of Canada.
The CSA’s broadcast live on Sunday, March 12, 2017 on CBC.
