Director Mario Pena and producer Samantha Lopez in attendance 

THE BOOK OF JOE is an action/sci-fi short film that pits Joe, an everyday man from South Texas, against Death, an Angel, and even Jesus himself in an apocalyptic battle for the future of Earth. Blending vintage science fiction, biblical imagery and South Texas Americana, THE BOOK OF JOE is a unique, entertaining, and action-packed take on the end of the world. Before returning to the filmmaker’s native Austin, the film has screened as part of the Official Selection at the Seattle International and the HollyShort Film Festivals, among others.
