David 'Blak' Plascencia
Actor / Producer
I was born into poverty in Tijuana, Mexico and immigrated to the United States at the age of 7, where I met and lived with my father, an aerospace engineer. Since 2012, I have worked on over 40 productions.
In reaction to the lack of Latino diversity in the industry, I started my own production company and produced Tijuana, a film inspired by my grandparents, that I also acted in. In 2019, Tijuana screened at Slamdance, Bentonville, Hollyshorts and at the Rome International Film Festival. The film was nominated for the Imagen Award and won 'Best TV PILOT' at the CFF Chelsey Awards. Tijuana is being developed into a series and will be one of 20 projects selected out of 6000 to be presented to Television buyers at Content London.
I'm currently cast as one of the leads in the 1940s period piece 3 FLOWERS that is currently filming.
