“Highlights” is a film about Fernando Chavez, who purchases a program that let’s him relive old memories, in the hopes of being happy again.
Eulises Jimenez is an inspired filmmaker since he was a kid. In a time and place where his peers prefer entertainment to education, Eulises sold all his wordly goods, including his CDs and DVDs to buy a camera. In addition to his art classes at Lynwood High School, he has independently pursued his passion for both still photography and video production and has already produced a unique body of work. Eulises has the artist’s eye, he sees beauty and finds meaning in the everyday, allowing us to experience his connection to friends, neighborhood, and his city Lynwood . He offers a unique perspective on such traditional themes as dark beauty, comedy and human emotion. Grit and idealism mix to reveal not only his subject matter but the artist himself.
