Film & Video

Ayala Grocery was my grandfather’s store and has served as a constant beacon, inspiring a series of videos and now growing into this website. I guess it’s my way of taking ownership of the family legacy and of showcasing a good portion of my work, which has the eclecticism of a grocery store at times-but not the randomness. All the work here reflects my personal interest, I’m very proud of the projects featured and I feel extremely lucky to have worked with the creative teams and individuals involved in these projects.

An award winning documentary producer and editor, my films have been selected and screened at the Sundance Film Festival, Telluride, IFC Center, Voces PBS, Havana Film Festival, New York International Latino Film Festival, CineSol Film Festival, Bicycle Film Festival, and Rooftop Films.
