Trivia: Producer/star Kristin West, and Writer/Director Armin Nasseri point out that they committed to not only having an ethnically diverse cast but also a gender balanced cast and crew. Five of the ten crew members were female. Of the principal and supporting cast of nine, five were females and four were male. Nasseri also made an atypical casting choice in West for the title role of Valentina. “I am not a size 0,” says West, “I usually get supporting character parts, not the romantic lead in a film like this.” West’s past roles have included playing a diverse array of character roles such as a fortune teller, ghoul, duchess, crime scene investigator and almost everything in between.
