About this submission

The film features LatinX leads, whose characters are multi-dimensional, classy, and complex humans. Although Julian is a gay man, the story doesn't revolve around sexuality and is a universal experience that all people can empathize with. These are things not often shown in cinema, and are important to be shown in mainstream media. Additionally, as a straight Latino man who grew up in Los Angeles, I feel that bringing this beautiful story to life is a healthy step forward in my own empathetic and emotional journey in this life, and I hope it brings the same to all who watch.
