Why Do We Remember? – Documentary
My first documentary was through the Latino Center of Art & Culture. It centered altar-makers and explored the Día de los Muertos tradition of creating altars to honor loved ones. It was shot exclusively on an iPhone 13 Pro.
Ernie – Short Film
My first narrative short film was Ernie which won Best Picture at Sacramento City Community College’s first film festival. I wrote, directed, and edited this film. It was shot on a Panasonic Lumix G85. This film follows a college student Kimmy coming to terms with the engine failure of her first car.
Teatro Espejo 2023 Summer One Act Festival – Documentary
My second documentary centered on Teatro Espejo, Sacramento’s oldest existing Latinx/Chicanx theater company and their 2023 Summer One Act Festival. This one act festival featured 3 first-time directors each directing a play that explores the complexity of the Latinx/Chicanx experience.
