The Story Behind the Story

Originally entitled Someone's Sorrow, Toothpaste was shot over two days in Mission, Texas.

The five teen writers worked alongside Ben Younger (Boiler Room, Prime) as he directed their story and their peers interned on set with different crew members. Younger strived to "give [them] a professional experience" and mentored them on how to break into the movie business. The City of Mission embraced the film shoot and secured locations, meals and supplies for the production. The Fire Department even lent their largest fire truck twice to Guillermo Navarro and his camera crew.

Toothpaste premiered theatrically with A Memoir to My Former Self (Miami, FL) and All Falls Down (New York City) in December 2004 in New York City.
