Bobby Boy

Dir. Robi York 2022

USA 4 min

May 26, 1997 in the Bronx. One of many birthdays spent in Yankee Stadium, which has become somewhat of a tradition that my brother Patrick started when I was as young as I can remember. This time we had the privilege of seeing Derek Jeter and The New York Yankees face Cal Ripken and The Baltimore Orioles. A game full of cheers and boo’s, as well as a surprise for my birthday.

the life and death of a mosquito

Dir. Walter Smits 2020

USA 10 min

A boy gives a presentation on the life and death of a mosquito. What else can we remember? This video is a love letter to the things we will stop remembering, to childhood, AND to conversations that don't matter. This video was once a love letter to someone who doesn't much matter anymore. It is a love letter to walks in the woods, water's-edge flowers, and moss covered logs. It's a love letter to my fear of memory loss to which I don't sign my name.

2006 The Only Year That I Remember

Dir. Alberto Van den Eynde 2019

Spain 14 min

Summer, 2019. My family and I are returning to two quintessential places from my childhood summers. On my way there I wonder why there aren't any home videos from those trips, when Jorge and I were children and the radio was tuned into "Los 40".It has to be me, some years later, the one who pick up my father’s old cameras and take back those images that had never existed. As if we were back to 2006.

Too Much Fun

Dir. Grace Mitchell 2020

USA 12 min

Swirling imagery of junk food, driveways, and caves. Dreamlike stories of a family and their intergenerational relations.
