Yani Gellman talks about his role as Mr. Arda in horror/comedy film 'Departing Seniors'

Meet Yani Gellman, the brilliant actor behind the character Mr. Arda in the captivating film 'Departing Seniors'! In this exclusive interview, Yani opens up about his on-set experience and the unique challenges of bringing his character to life. Don't miss out on the opportunity to witness his exceptional performance in this heartwarming coming-of-age story!

Departing Seniors - Mexican-American and queer, high school student Javier doesn’t exactly fit in with the popular kids. But he might be the only one who can save them. After an act of bullying sends Javier to the hospital, he begins experiencing visions that foresee glimpses of shocking murders at his school right before they happen. Now, in between navigating the social hierarchies and prejudices of clique culture, Javier (Primo’s Ignacio Diaz-Silverio) and his best friend Bianca (Candyman’s Ireon Roach) must try to unmask a serial killer before he strikes again.

Departing Seniors puts a fresh spin on teen slasher movies like Scream and Freaky, updating them by putting its queer protagonist and characters of color front and center. It’s a horror-comedy with a sarcastic, whip-smart edge and appealingly complex characters.

Departing Seniors will open in select theaters and be available on VOD/PVOD on February 2nd
