As a storyteller I wanted to showcase a Latino family that did not fit under the stereotypical image and conversation of what America wants us to look and sound like. “Altagracia” is a short film about a grandmother who has had to raise her two grandchildren on her own after their parents died. I wanted to paint a portrait that debunked stereotypes often seen in the media when representing Latino families from lesser means in New York City.
