About this submission

For your consideration,

"Swab" is an intimate portrait of familial support between an older sister (Anais) and her younger brother (Sebastian). Uncomfortable yet vulnerable situations like these are hardly ever depicted on screen or addressed, especially within Latinx communities. This is based on a lived experience and I created this short to show others they are not alone.
