As for major obstacles keeping young Latinos from becoming filmmakers, I think our communities are still coming into their identities as storytellers. It’s such an important identity to reclaim – it’s how our ancestors kept our cultures alive.

I think there needs to be a focus on this aspect to help cultivate young Latinas to see themselves as cultural producers and defenders.
I wanted to be a real writer, you can put it this way, but I was lazy. So I thought that cinema would be funnier because it’s collective, and it’s crazy, and it’s chaotic, and also because I was based in Spain.
