Director Statement

"See you soon", were the last words I told my family before leaving on November 30th, 2011. Since then, it has been a long 11 years.

While I was driving on the 110 freeway, listening to cumbia music, I was sitting in traffic and looking out to the city and admiring Los Angeles. I often look out to the city and think to myself how beautiful this city is and how often it reminds me of Tegucigalpa. The tall buildings, the pedestrians walking, and suddenly, this random burst of cold breeze whisks me away to my Cerro de Plata (Tegucigalpa, Honduras).

I find myself constantly questioning how many times has Los Angeles transported me back to Tegucigalpa? I have lost count. There have been numerous moments in my life where these nostalgic throwbacks have reminded me of my home in Honduras. However, I consistently long to find my home somewhere in the middle; I long to search for a place where I can lookout and see these former familiar memories with my current home in Los Ángeles.

This film was inspired by my personal experience through the lens of a Honduran undocumented creative living in Los Angeles. This story explores theme of visa overstay migration, living under a single parent household, and the constant demands of independent adulthood.

This is my love letter to all of those who had to leave loved ones behind in search of a new home. This is dedicated to all of the 11 million+ immigrants who continue to search for their home.

Thank you to the Center of Cultural Power and Jesus Iñiguez for trusting and supporting me on this journey of creating a deeply personal and emotional film.
