Sundance '07 (New Year's Prayer)

I'm an insecure person, let's just start with that. I poured a lot of what I felt before, during (with the anticipation of The Night Buffalo), and after the festival into this vlog, a lot of which newly motivated by watching my new box set of Six Feet Under on a loop. But it seems that the windows to what is possible, are clear, now that I know it can all end so quickly. so I better shut the fuck up, quit bitching, and just do- it is so on 2007... and even more on in 2008!

damn it feels good to be a Mexican!

I was right there with Salma Hayek, getting all emotional announcing a vast number of Latin filmmakers as nominees, including Penelope Cruz for Volver and Adriana Barraza for Babel. It doesn't stop in front of the camera, behind it includes composer Gustavo Santaolalla and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for Babel, screenwriter Alfonso Cuaron and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki for Children of Men, writer/director Guillermo DelToro and cinematographer Guillermo Navarro for Pan's Labyrinth. It's the Mexican New Wave, and as a Latin American filmmaker, it feels pretty damn good to know that I'm being represented at the most revered awards ceremony for film.
