Adios Vaya Con Dios is a Latino film directed by La Raza (meaning the people of the Latino communities depicted),[2] and written by Zachary Laoutides. It stars Zachary Laoutides as a half-Irish half-Mexican gang member trying to escape his neighborhood.[3]


Adios Vaya Con Dios is a film inspired by the real stories within the world of Chicago's Hispanic street gangs. Rory King, a rising Irish-Mexican gang leader for the 'Olmecs', struggles to leave his neighborhood. When Rory’s friend Eloy is released from prison, Eloy pushes their friendship into the violence and street justice of their gang allegiances, compromising Rory's escape.[4]

Production was completed in June 2014. Adios Vaya Con Dios was created through unifying Latino communities and barrios in Chicago that came together in support of the film, sharing their stories and experiences.[6] The film director credit was given to La Raza (the people), due to the diverse street artists and talents who brought their scenes to life.[7][8]

The film's soundtrack brought together artists and musicians ranging from Mexico to the United Kingdom.[9] The film was the first to integrate a British and Mexican rock soundtrack over a Latino urbanized film.[10]


Adios Vaya Con Dios premiered at the 2014 Bel Air Film Festival in West Hollywood. The film was released worldwide by Indican Pictures on January 19, 2016.[11]

The movie was released to Redbox in 2018 through Lionsgate Films.[8][12]


Zachary Laoutides was nominated as Best Actor and Best Screenplay writer at the Bel Air Film Festival, and the film earned an Official Selection and Runner-up for Best Audience Feature Film.[13] The film has been referred to as a gangster film with European and Spanish rock music, a cross between Amores Perros and an art film.[14]
