Director's statement

Ramona came from an fleeting idea we had about an elderly man or woman sitting in a seedy motel, waiting for a prostitute. We had wanted to work with Rich's grandparents for a long time and thought that if they were game, this could be the piece. Even though the story itself is fiction we wanted to find a way to bring who they are to the screen. We knew this would be a challenge because they are not actors. The process was very meaningful for all of us. They were so open and generous. This is a story about sexuality and desire, but it's just as much about being 'old'. Ramona, Jesus and Juana all have a vitality and energy that somehow defies their age, that perhaps speaks in opposition to the notion that as we reach a certain age our ideas and experiences become narrowed.
