Where the Magic Happens/ “Outside your Comfort Zone”

En esta sección de mi blog, les iré contando sobre mi primer corto documental “Where the Magic Happens – Outside your comfort zone”. 

I am profoundly grateful to have received the micro-grant from Platform A by Art Starts, Platform A, and Toronto Arts Council, helped me developed my idea of this short documentary.

My short documentary Where the Magic Happens  Is Nine stories, nine countries: Immigration map that illustrates the challenges facing newcomers by settling into a multicultural city like Toronto.  

Los protagonistas de estas historias, a ellos les debo mucho, y siempre les estaré agradecida por la gran confianza de dejarme filmarlos y ser parte de mí vida.
