Director's Statement

If lost, Roxanna Denise can be found playing violin at an inconvenient hour or daydreaming with her goats. Coming from a large Mexican American immigrant family and having earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Film and Television as well as a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, she hopes to tell stories that incorporate both music and film in telling stories that reflect her identity. Presently, she is working as the first diversity fellow for George Lucas Education Foundation's Edutopia and as the first mentee for FivetoSixty's filmmaker program while her debut short film, Tesoro, continues in the festival as it's garnered 13 film festival selections.
