"The Last Time", 2013, video. This piece began simply as a structured screenplay writing exercise. Shortly into the process I knew that I needed to push the work into moving image format. I believe that the most impactful art stems from truth, therefore that's what motivates me as an artist. I drew directly from personal life experience, and specific incidences, while creating this short film. I intend for this work-of-art to be proactive and uncomfortable in its realness. I want it to prompt the viewer to ask questions of me as the storyteller -- and of themselves. ¡Silencié, no mas!
