This was a really great episode with my friend, Axel Arzola, an LA filmmaker who escaped Cuba and used his film work to make his way to movie paradise in Los Angeles, California. We met while he was in film school in Chattanooga, TN a few years back, and it’s been an absolute joy to watch him move up his career over the years.
You can watch the short film he recently Executive Produced called Indocumentada below:
This short film packs a lot of emotion and intensity into a short amount of time, and is incredibly crafted. It comes at a time where this can be seen as a controversial film, but I believe its message is far more nuanced than current political debate, as it deals with human emotions surrounding a difficult event.
