Esther Segovia "La Gotán" was chosen for a important role in the short film "Abuelo",
directed by Mary Ann Kellogg. This short was a product of the American Film Institute's (AFI)
Directing Workshop for Women. It features famous argentinean born actor, Castulo Guerra as
the "abuelo" (grandfather), Brit Flatmo as the young granddaughter, Greg Baglia as the dad, Norma
Maldonado as the store clerk and Esther Segovia "La Gotán" as the tango singer.

This film, directed by Mary Ann Kellogg, written by Doug Cooney, and produced by Laurie Siedman,
tells the heartwarming story of a 12 year old girl born in Los Angeles who loses her mother, and
her grandfather comes from Argentina to care for her.

Esther was chosen for the role as the result of a recommendation by a friend. After meeting with the
director, ideas were exchanged regarding the music score of the film, and Esther's original song,
"Soy La Segovia, Soy El Gotán" , written by composer, Lito Solanas, was picked as the film's music
score and original theme.

The film was showcased at the Director's Guild of America (DGA) in Hollywood with great reviews.
(See the RealTVFilms.com interview)It is currently competing around the US in important film festivals
including the 13th Annual LA Shorts Fest, the 14th Nantucket Film Festival of 2009 in New York, the 15th
Annual Palm Springs International Shortfest 2009 in California, Rhode Island International Film Festival 2009,
HBO Latino International Film Festival 2009.
"Abuelo" has already won the "Family Award" at the USA Film
and Video Competition Festival in Texas.


A screenplay for a long feature is on the works expecting to begin shooting in the summer of 2010.
