Kenneth Castillo grew up in the shadow of The Vincent Thomas Bridge in the small harbor town known as Wilmington, Ca. aka The Port of Los Angeles. He has written and directed 7 feature films (including "Sidewayz" and "Counterpunch") and has established himself in the urban Latino genre. In 2015 he formed the production company Cienfuegos Productions. His memoir STEREOTYPICAL: My Filmmaking Journey from the Harbor to Hollywood is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2020.
