Director Statement

Story telling is my passion, telling stories about people of color, women of color, of Latinos, women in particular, fiction and non-fiction is particularly interesting since I never really saw that growing-up. It is about showing those women who want to tell stories, they can tell their stories and they should. There is an audience for them, who fill follow and support them. Our stories need to be told by us for us.
