About this submission

Sebastian y Su Mama tells the story about two illegal immigrants who are staying at a motel a couple of days before they are deported. Through this piece I hope to examine these characters and treat them with the love and attention they aren't entirely afforded. Having come from an immigrant mother, the story and process of leaving your home for something that is completely foreign is extremely interesting to me.

I grew up in a latino household and I want to tell stories that are observational and layered. I'm interested in writing and directing with the hopes of telling stories that feel personal to myself. Currently working on a handful of short and feature films, practicing as much as I can to develop and understand the cinematic language.
