Director Biography - Barbara Estelle DeJesus

Barbara Estelle DeJesus is a Writer, Director, Producer, Actress, and founder of Cloak & Cauldron.

Director Statement

As a first time Writer/Director, I was both nervous and excited to tackle this project. Throughout the development of "Prophecy" it began to feel like time traveling, as we were connecting many threads of my ancestry, and personal past, to interwoven paths in the present. It was a catharsis, and an education, exposing hidden truths and distant memories. It forced me to rise further into my destiny, for that I will be forever grateful.

Every person involved, cast and crew, went above and beyond to contribute an integral piece of magic which brought this story to life, and we did our best to capture that essence and translate it to the screen.

“Prophecy” is a story of hope, rebirth, forgiveness, and an homage to those who have come before to pave our way.
