Hidden Parts takes place during a graveyard shift at a San Francisco parking garage. When the cocky, teen-age attendant upsets a customer, a middle-aged co-worker steps in to smooth the ruffled feathers and preserve the peace—for a while at least. Morning comes, the customer—a fiery, young bank executive—returns and the feud reignites. This time the jobs of both workers are threatened. Only the intervention by a flamboyant bail bonds tycoon saves the day.
-The Hidden Parts screenplay was a finalist in the 1993 Hispanic Film Project and the 1994 shorts category of the Austin Heart of Film Festival.
-The screenwriter, Carlos Castillo, formed a general partnership with Roger Amrhein to produce Hidden Parts as a film. The entity was named Picacho Peak Productions.
Hidden Parts was shot on 16mm film in early 1995 at various locations throughout San Francisco. The parking garage in the film was an actual car detail shop located on Green Street between Van Ness and Polk. The building that housed the shop was torn down a few years later to make way for a condo development.
