The Santa Maria

Vertical films do not come around very often, let alone vertical film noirs.  So, when the do they must be treasured.  The Santa Maria focuses on a normal guy who is suddenly thrust in to an extraordinary situation. In this case it involves treasure maps, gangsters and a femme fatale. Written by Folke Renken and Erik Schmitt and also directed by the latter, The Santa Maria is a lot of fun.
