This film was created to empower the Latino community and to break the cycle of GENERATIONAL INCARCERATION.
Born in Sylmar, California, Alex Ferrufino never seen the movie businesses being his career. He always had a love for movies but his background would say otherwise. After the loss of a very good friend due to gang violence, he made a choice to turn his life around. Being a native from Los Angeles, he decided to pursue a career in film maker.
His enthusiasm and drive to accomplish the dreams he set forth pushed him into the craft of directing. Through a camera, he fell in love with the art of storytelling. He feels that he has an obligation to tell stories that speak for his culture and rough upbringing. He wants to give young people like him a voice.
I want to be the voice to my people in the struggle, tell authentic stories outside of the “popular” narrative.
