I make thought-provoking intelligent films and wish to inspire. First-time feature-length Sundance alum Migdia Chinea Is a Cuban in Los Ángeles. “When it rains...” (80 mins. 2021).
Filming without financial resources is complicated. It’s all about the creativity beyond logic you must develop to shoot every scene, since you start out with nothing — nothing to work with, so you have to cut corners, make decisions and ignore obstacles standing in your way. The challenge is to persist, complete your projects and figure out another way to support yourself and move on to the next project. Each obstacle brings new lessons and situations to overcome.
Now, we must get our long, hard work out to the world, which is at the point where film festivals come in.
Please, help my film soar!
