La Vida Nunca Para

In the Latino community, having a lot on your plate and being constantly busy may seem like a positive thing; but many don’t consider the negative effects it has on someone. It leads to mental health issues such as high-stress levels and anxiety that causes life to feel as though it is moving too fast and you can’t keep up. While making this I was going through what I am describing in my film and I felt like I was drowning, and no one seemed to care. I have learned that I need to take a break from time to time and do something I enjoy; which led me to create this film.
