Treasures Beneath My Tree

I grew up in Arizona, and spent my summers in the tiny mountain town of Concepción de Buenos Aires in Jalisco, the home of my father’s family. "Treasures Beneath My Tree," a short film I wrote, directed and edited, honors the beloved patches of nature I knew as a child – both the lone tree in my front yard in the Arizonan desert, and the lush green of the Mexican pueblo – and the power of staying connected to nature and to our younger selves. Since its premiere at Chicago International Film Festival, “Treasures Beneath My Tree” has been selected to screen at film festivals across the U.S. and all around the globe.
