Director Statement

Vivos is a tragic comedy that seeks to expose the insulting hypocrisy of race, gender and homosexuality vs authority. This is my film directing debut in which I experiment with digital media and a grittier aesthetic. Shot in Standard Definition with 35mm medium lens format adaptor and Mamiya lens. The dialogue was based from improvised performances shot on location.
