    Film / Video          
My film and video work is an exploration of identity and it focuses on topics of marginality and exclusion. Whether I am using fiction or documentary to tell stories, the human element is what is more important for me. Through out the years, I've had the opportunity to realize my work the way I conceive and imagine it. I'm inspired to work with issues that are not fully accepted or acknowledged by the mainstream. In this fashion, I record the stories of peoples and communities dealing with issues of immigration, legality, identity, and representations.
