AL QUE DI MI AMOR (2021)
An essay film shot in San Salvador, El Salvador, in the midst of the passing of my grandmother, Maria de Los Angeles de Guzman. Composed of poems written by grandparents, narrated by my mother. some of my own words and mostly long, still shots of her garden, her funeral, and other sites visited during the span of a week, this film serves to commemorate her life. As a whole, "Al Que Di Mi Amor" ("To Whom I Gave My Love To") contemplates the mysteries of love, mortality and life-cycles while also offering itself up as a reverent and romantic letter to the beautiful landscape of El Salvador.
