About the Director

Cristóbal Guerra is an independent filmmaker and writer from San Juan, PR currently based in New York. His work combines experimental video , documentary film and text to explore ideas of home, “el caribe” and queerness, with an ethnographic eye that centers the humanness of the subjects. His next project, set to release in 2019, documents nine families from Puerto Rico who have participated in “exotic wakes” organized by a funeral business in a small community in San Juan.
