IndiePix Films has announced its release of a poignant coming-of-age roadtrip drama from writer/director Guillermo Zouain (his feature film debut) titled “On the Road, Somewhere” (“Algún lugar”)- an Official Selection at numerous festivals including the Miami International Film Festival, the Chicago Latino Film Festival, Cine Las Americas and the International Film Festival of Panama.

The film will premiere this Friday, August 12, exclusively on IndiePix Unlimited, IndiePix Films’ streaming subscription service.





“On the Road, Somewhere” follows three high-school best friends, Oliver (Arnold Martínez), Moises (Javier Grullón), and Hemingway (Victor Alfonso), on a summer road-trip through the Dominican Republic – their last together before college. Oliver needs to arrive at all costs to the remote town of Pedernales to say goodbye to his high school sweetheart before she moves away to New York. Moises is documenting the trip as a last tribute to his love of photography before enrolling in a career in civil engineering. And Hemingway seeks to escape his oppressive family and become a writer in a society that despises authors. Along the way, the car breaks down frequently, leaving the three boys stranded with nearly every character under the Dominican sun: a Haitian hitchhiker, a famous photographer and an intriguing artist. And when these strangers trigger a series of adventures unexpectedly changing their travel plans, their celebratory journey may well become a final farewell.

Nominated for “Best Feature Film” at the 2015 Miami International Film Festival and Top Indie Film Awards 2015, among numerous other accolades, “On the Road, Somewhere” will initially only be available on IndiePix Unlimited, which gives passionate cinephiles 24/7 access to a highly-curated catalog of cinematic gems from both international auteurs and visionary new voices alike. There, it joins other contemporary classics of world cinema including 2009 Cannes Camera D’Or winner, “Samsom & Delilah,” Iranian artist Shirin Neshat’s feature-length debut, the Golden Lion-nominated “Women Without Men” and Noaz Deshe’s powerful “White Shadow,” where, for $5.99 per month, it – along with 400+ other films across all genres – will be available on any device or platform through or apps available on iTunes or Google Play.
