The Real James Bond Was Dominican by Christopher Rivas
What happens when a Dominican boy in Queens—with an imagination far beyond his shell, who won’t go anywhere without his nerf gun and is obsessed with James Bond—finds out that the real James Bond was Dominican? This is a true story about Porfirio Rubirosa, Ian Fleming’s inspiration for Bond— and how this discovery set off a whole tragi-comic journey for a young, Dominican actor-to-be. The Real James Bond Was Dominican is a young man’s guide to love, sex, color, code-switching, white-washing, success, fake-it-till-you-make-it, and the roller coaster of finding one’s true self. Directed by Daniel Banks.
