Surreal workplace comedy ‘ALL SORTS’ Makes Streaming Premiere October 4
ALL SORTS, Directed by J. Rick Castañeda:
“Diego is desperate – for a job, for excitement, for love. When he gets hired to work by Vasquez, the absurd boss who loves data but can’t type, Diego finds himself in the strange, strange land of Data-Mart. There he meets June, an incredibly fast filer, and as the two make their way into the secret world of underground filing, things will never be the same.
Diego agrees to be her coach and manager, and as June rises up through the underground filing ranks, the two begin to fall for each other. But do they really have a shot, or are they just fooling themselves?”

ABOUT THE FILM:
The film had its festival premiere in 2021 at the Seattle International Film Festival and was one of the festival’s most-viewed films. Chase Hutchinson of The Stranger said it was “a sentimental and surrealist comedy unlike anything else I’ve seen at the festival.”
“All Sorts,” a movie about a lonely data entry clerk who stumbles into the world of championship folder filing, is a quirky comedy about finding magic in everyday life. The main character, Diego (played by Eli Vargas of “Chavez”; “You, Me and Dupree”; “Arrested Development”; and “Burning Bodhi”), is desperate to find a job, excitement, and even love. New on the job at a strange company, Diego stumbles into an incredibly fast folder filer named June (played by Greena Park of “The Comedown” and “Family from Tang”), and the two journey through a wildly unexpected office adventure.
“We want to make magic; that’s why we make movies, and that’s especially why we made this movie,” director Rick Castaneda says. “This is a very positive movie about love, about friendship, about finding magic in a dim, drab place. We think it will bring smiles to a lot of faces, and really get people to think about their world in a different way.”
