Director Biography – Luis Fernando Puente, Lizde Arias

Lizde Arias is a cat-loving mexican, immigrant, writer and journalist. In her work she seeks to highlight and retell the mundane by giving a spotlight to the aspects of life that are often overlooked.

Director Statement

Being an immigrant, sometimes it is easy to forget where you come from, as you struggle to adapt to a new world around you. El Moño is an innocent analogy of how family traditions, such as this mistical little ritual, have the quasi-magical power to bring you back home no matter how long you’ve been gone or how far you are from those that you love.
