memories (recuerdos) – TIFF short film
Childhood memories can be a blur, becoming part of a vague narrative you’re never entirely sure is true.
But what if they’re all you have left of the ones you love?
I made this short in response to the increasing amount of children getting separated from their families at the U.S - Mexico border. I have relatives in the States and it's scary to think that their immigration status could determine whether or not they get to stay with their loved ones. There's a lack of closure and uncertainty that accompanies these situations and I wanted to explore those feelings with this film.
