¿Importa? is my first short film. It’s based on one of my short plays, which was chosen to participate in a short play festival in NYC in June 2017. It’s a bit like an art film. In Spanish with English subtitles, filmed in Oaxaca, Mexico.

I decided I wanted to film my short plays (about 12 in all) and I chose ¿Importa? (Does It Matter?) as the first. It was selected to be part of the Awake! Theater’s Prizm Festival in Manhattan in June 2017, and was also one of the eight plays we produced in Oaxaca in June 2018 (translated into Spanish).
I also chose this play because I knew it would fit well with being filmed on the Andador Turistico, the pedestrian street in El Centro de Oaxaca.
In the two weeks since its premiere (Nov 5, 2019) it’s had almost 200 views. The movie is 12.5 minutes long and was shot in a single-take style. Enjoy!
The next film is scheduled for production in July 2020.
