About this submission

This is a small dialogue scene I wrote to face the loss of my father which has happened in the middle of this pandemic crisis.

My father didn't die from COVID, he had a complicate health situation and it was his time to rest, I think about how because of what we are going through the process of grieving for our lost ones has changed, there are protocols to follow and whatnot and it creates this sort of disconnect.

I wrote this as a wishful kind of dream moment of being reunited with my father again, being able to talk to him again, hug him one last time and try to transmit how much he meant to me.

Dilia Oviedo Luciano is a multidisciplinary artist from Dominican Republic. Although new to filmmaking and certain production aspects of it, Dilia has had a long career spanning more than a decade in the art of still photography, their work focuses on what they call the 'psychological portrait' an idea in which the still is supposed to reflect the inner psyche of the subject and allow us a glimpse inside their emotional world. It is because of this emotional search that a few years ago while finding themselves at a crossroads with photography, that Dilia decided to embark on the learning journey of screenwriting, something which allowed them to further develop as an artist and person and also brought to life a myriad of stories and characters which they are now working hard to produce in the form of short films, music videos, series and feature films.
