SHORT LIST

Statement

Hear the immigrants sing.

This piece was shot during 2014-2016 at the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in my neighborhood.

The annual festival of Puerto Ricans who do not have the right to vote in the U.S. but have U.S. citizenship.
I felt their assertion of identity buried in the history of Spain and the United States.
If someday I will dance Bon Odori in China during Obon.
I want to be prepared to dance well.
