Director Statement

Having migrated at a young age from Mexico to the Netherlands, I wanted to make a film from the perspective of a child who is about to leave their community. In Times of Rain is a patchwork of stories inspired by the writer's experiences, my own, and those of friends, and family members, and many others who shared their stories with us and who have had to migrate at some point and leave their communities behind.
