A Parent’s Wishlist (2021, video, colour & b&w, 6.16)

A short film about upward mobility and working class aspirations, A Parent's Wishlist focuses on a set of objects that could be found in many North American homes between the middle to late 20th century, and how they came to symbolise my father's wish for a better life.

A Life on the Borderlands (2021, video, colour & b&w, 9.03)

A film focusing on my father, who immigrated to Montreal from Chile in the early 1970s after a hard-scrabble life on the streets of Santiago as a youth. Like my mother, who immigrated from Argentina around that time, his mobile life was characterised by neither chain migration nor lasting social ties with members of his ethnic group. His story is also one about class, politics, and complicated histories of migration and exile.
