Director, "Charm City Kings"

Culture in Hollywood: Redefining the Language of the Screenplay

A native of Puerto Rico, Angel Manuel Soto discovered soccer and boxing at an early age, which inspired his first film EL PUGIL, a homage to the kids he had grown up with and the power of sports in economically repressed communities. Angel pursued his interest in art, studying architecture and eventually documentary filmmaking and writing. He began his career in entertainment as a TV producer and later focused on Art Direction at a local advertising agency. He made his feature directorial debut with LA GRANJA (The Farm) which sheds a thought-provoking light on the tough realities facing the people of Puerto Rico. He went on to create several groundbreaking narrative VR pieces such as DINNER PARTY and BASHIR’S DREAM which have premiered to critical success at festivals.

Recently Angel directed the Award Winning Sundance 2020 darling CHARM CITY KINGS, which is now streaming on HBO Max. Currently, he is set to direct the D.C. feature BLUE BEETLE for Warner Bros. and a new installment of TRANSFORMERS for Paramount.
