It was an official selection of the Emerging Filmmaker's Showcase at the American Pavilion in Cannes (2020). The film was also a finalist for the Cine Sony film competition for Sony Pictures. His previous film, 'Broken Sunflower Hearts,’ garnered over five awards internationally and was named by Remezcla Magazine as one of the year's 'Best Short Films’ by U.S. Latino directors. He co-wrote the critically acclaimed stage play 'Melancholia,' which had a successful run in Los Angeles and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, where it was nominated for Amnesty International's Freedom of Expression Award.
