Lisann Valentin stars in Bushwick-based Series "Cornelia"
Web Series Tackles Loyalty, Loss and Latino Culture in the Face of Gentrification
By: Lisann Valentin
Named for Cornelia Street in Brooklyn, the dramedy centers on the Castillo family, exploring loyalty amidst loss and maintaining cultural values in a neighborhood that is rapidly becoming the new hipster hotspot.
As a Brooklyn resident herself, Valentin believes the "the blessings and burdens of living in a neighborhood that is suddenly on the map," will feel very familiar to viewers.
What this means for the Castillo family in particular is shown through the perspective of siblings who face their family legacy head-on, beginning on the day of their mothers funeral.
Starring as the diva sister Pilar, the actress delights in how "organic the story feels. The love, the loss, the laughter… by the end of this season, you'll want to be a part of the Castillo family, just wait and see."
