SUNDAY, AUGUST 21st: 'Virgin of the Candles' is a short film written and directed by Argentinian-born Victoria Giordana. Victoria was earning her master's degree from Academy of Art College when she asked Wendy Loomis to compose the music for her thesis film. This past week 'Virgin' was chosen to be included in the International Latino Film Festival to be held at the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Wendy's score to this wonderful short includes musical performances by Barbara Jaspersen (vocals), Monica Williams (alto and pan flutes), Jessie Webber (bata drums), and Suellen Primose (cello).
