Director Statement

When i moved to New York in 2015 to attend film school I thought it was gonna be the experience of a lifetime. Growing up as an aspiring filmmaker in Mexico City I had a very romanticised view of film school and New York. When I got here it was nothing like I thought it would be. I started dealing with the heavy workload of an intensive program as I was still trying to adapt to completely new place for me. A lot of things were alien to me like the freezing weather and cold New Yorkers. Being a natural documentarist, I filmed a lot of what I was going through and eventually I decided to make it into a short personal film. I can just hope that young aspiring filmmakers that find themselves in similar situations can identify with the film and find comfort in knowing that they're not alone.
