Director Statement

Our stories define the meaning of our existence, they are they core of our memories and help us shape the most intimate sense of who we really are. Even when we don’t embody them, we could take part on their development by spreading real messages that could create the ideal platform for them to transcend and make a real impact.
“The Other Side of the Rainbow” belongs to that party of tales that deserves to be shared, acknowledged and celebrated. Its intent, is to provide the audience with a beautiful and poetic flow, to recognize the substantial need for true appreciation and to manifest the power of unconditional love.

This short film was developed, produced and delivered by a dreamer who after 20 plus years of performing as a dancer, has decided to pursue his very first dream: cinema. The director currently works as a dancer for an International Cruise Line and has done it for the past 8 years. This has allowed him to utilize his free time to learn filmmaking and to collaborate with other artists for his projects. With no real film crew on board, “The Other Side of the Rainbow” was produced with the clear goal of entering the film festival circuit and with this, introduce the director to the world he couldn’t choose to be part in his youth.

The film has picked up its first official selection and will be screened at the 2022 Official Latino Film and Arts Festival on Dec. 09-11 in Palm Springs CA, USA.

Hope this will help you decide to include this beautiful project in your roster, it is already an honor having you considering its selection. With your assistance, we could keep broadcasting its compelling and unforgettable message.
