Director Statement

Lagrimas is a film I hold dear to my heart. It encapsulates the beauty and pain I see happening in Puerto Rico right now. From politics to traditions, there is an extreme shift that has become more evident through generations. I hope this film inspires questions, thoughts, art, and action from the audience and emphasizes the ongoing issues in the island that can be related across the globe. Community to me is everything and through this film I hope it can bring people together with open minds and hearts.
