No possible combination of words will accurately express the gratitude I feel for this opportunity. I grew up with people like Santi and it’s an honor to do my best to bring truth to him.
Thank you @rlacen for writing such authentic, multi-layered humans.
This project is a blessing on many different levels.
The film’s reason for existence is the mission of @youngwomenunitedfilms to advocate for women and people of color.
Thank you for all you do daily.
I was able to work in my favorite place again, New Mexico.
I got to work with my compa, the super talented, dedicated chingona @melissabarreram (you’ve never seen her like this!). And I was able to finally share a filming experience with my sister and niece (my reason for everything). Thank you to everyone involved for making me feel welcomed and at home. Thank you @newmallysewn for your beautiful Costumes! And Pepper Gallegos for the tatoos!
