Director's statement

LA TIERRA DEL EXODO is my sixth film as a writer/director. It’s a short drama about a recently kidnapped American teenager who is led to the Mexico/United States border by a Mexican street kid who has hopes of crossing into America for a better life. This story originated from my own experiences as a child living in Mexico. I had a friend named Obed who would take me around Matamoros, Mexico without our parents supervision. We spent many late nights running the streets and getting into trouble. Fortunately we were never kidnapped or killed. I have always wondered what it would be like if I, as an American, had to cross the border in order to make it home. The experiences we shared have stayed with me and have been the source of inspiration for a lot of my writing. I’m excited to share this journey with you!
