Displaced

Displaced

More than 80 years ago Franco pushed half of my family out of Spain. They found refuge in Venezuela. Now I belong to the Venezuelan diaspora: an immigrant; descendant of immigrants. This is my lament. My attempt at understanding. Absurd historic recurrence.

He is recipient of the Audience Choice Award from the Shanghai International Film Festival, the Grand Prize from the Snowtown Film Festival, the Best Film and Best Directing Awards from the Caracas City Hall Film Awards, the Best Story Award from the Buffalo-Niagara Film Festival, and a production grant from the New York State Council of the Arts.
