El milagro de las rosas

2018

1/1

This short film follows a daughter who must come to terms with her father’s death as she reminisces the complex memories she watched slip through her fingertips - inspired by our own grandfather’s Mexican immigration story. 

 

"It was a miracle. Now, whenever roses appear out of nowhere, we believe it to be the work of saint. I told you this story a long time ago with my words pressed against your forehead. You were fast asleep... The sun gave life to the roses, the roses gave life to the Earth, the Earth gave life to you, and you have given like to me. And in everything, from the flowers to the earth to the sun, I will always be with you."
