Director Biography - Jean Luis Garcia

I was born in the Dominican Republic in 1992. Ever since I was young, I was always obsessed with the camera. Very early I fell in love with the idea of capturing a reality and being able to tell a story with it. As a young filmmaker my goal is to give the world my perspective. I want to create stories that not only matter to me, but that can also impact the lives of others in a positive way.

Director Statement

No one is going to tell your story for you. As the youth of this generation it is our obligation to give our perspective and tell our story to the world. This was something that my college professor taught me and it is what inspired me to create this film. making this film was an unforgettable experience and my first. It truly taught me a lot about documentary film-making, especially how delicate and difficult it can be to tell a story. I hope that through this film i can promote awareness, encourage change and bring hope to my neighbors who also live in this building.
