Director Statement

"Overtime" is a ghost story that incorporates Cuban immigrant themes into the genre. It tells the story of a struggling immigrant trying to do best for his family. Stories of people from my own family as well as the cast and crew. Stories we all share.

It is also inspired by accounts of a haunting in a local Miami warehouse. The film was shot on location in the warehouse where the encounters occurred. Full respect was paid to any presences in the space.
