OUR PASTS ARE IN THE OCEAN, 6min., USA
Directed by Dairys Escoto De Léon
It's 2120, a mom and a daughter are moving out of an extremely polluted city on a scavenger hunt for clean air. As they exit the city by traveling through the ocean, the tension of the decision strains their relationship.
This film is very dear to my relationship with my own mother and our immigration journey. I hope this little film encompasses the complexity of our growth, separation, and unity.
