The angel, as he has now come to call her, appeared to Jesus Nebot right after a workout as he was walking to his car outside a health club in Santa Monica. She had no halo or shiny aura around her. Instead she was carrying a mini digital video camera. She had a mission, as angels do: to show the actor and founder of Zokalo Innovative Entertainment footage she had taped for 10 days while on the run from the Tijuana border to Los Angeles with a troubled father and daughter.

From a newspaper account of a woman who ran away with her former lover on her wedding day, Federico Garcia Lorca fashioned the crimson emotional tide known as "Bodas de Sangre" (Blood Wedding). Its central triangle is guided toward death and grief--two die, many others grieve--by onstage characters no less symbolically freighted than the Moon and Death, disguised as a beggar. It is therefore not a play for timid theater-makers. Good news.

"No Turning Back," a well-intentioned first film about immigration by Spanish actor and filmmaker Jesus Nebot, packs the sincerity of an after-school special, but with no more depth than those yellow warning signs that one encounters along I-5 depicting the silhouette of a fleeing family. More a 99-minute public service announcement about the plight of illegal immigrants than a fully formed drama, the film finds itself in a no-win situation not unlike that of its protagonist.

At last, a production that offers a new motive for Shylock's villainy. Most modern versions of Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" paint Shylock, the play's Jewish loan shark, as a pathetic victim who exacts his revenge after a life of religious persecution. Yet the new effort by Will & Company at Los Angeles Theatre Center's Theatre 3 gives another rationale: Poor Shylock is the only rational man in a sea of cartoonish clowns.

Maria Novaro's "Without Leaving a Trace," as assured an audience-pleaser as her "Danzon" was a decade ago, screens at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Egyptian's Lloyd E. Rigler Theater in the continuing Latino International Film Festival. Novaro deftly pairs two different but similarly audacious young women on the lam from Ciudad Juarez to Cancun; throughout the journey the women are followed by a red car with shaded windows.
