I'm so honored to have been included in this community of creative artists and companies who strive to show emerging Latino talent in filmmaking. It’s important to see and hear stories from the Latino perspective so that we can better understand the world we live in and how it affects us. It’s important for their voices to be heard and their stories to be shared.
And when you’re faced with with difficult decisions follow the advice given in West Side Story, “Be cool.” And lastly and probably my favorite is Bobby’s advice, “…to be inspiring and passionate. It will always come through and people will find it contagious. It is what brings out the best in all of us.” That’s one thing I can firmly attest to just from speaking to this inspiring musical talent. I’m looking forward to hearing Sanabria’s re-imagined music to “West Side Story” for even more inspiration!
