El Dibujo - Short Film


Art Becomes A Living Nightmare

Pita the daughter of two immigrants parents draws a horrific drawing of her nightmare. Something that wants to take them in the night. 




All the funds will go directly to the production of this short film. This includes paying the actors, crew, and props. Any money left over will be donated to charities of Latinx families that have had their loved ones separated from them.


We have shot a faux trailer so you can see what we are trying to make. This isn’t the final footage that will end up in the project but we wanted to show what we want to produce.

Additional Information


This film has been my passion project for the last 4 years and we are close to getting the film in the can. we Have tracked down a location and we have cast the family in this film. 

Growing up in a Mexican household I grew up with a fear of this monster that would come for my family in the night and leave me all alone. Little did I know this was the main inspiration for El Dibujo, a real fear I want to share with the world. 

With this film, I want to in future inspire other filmmakers who feel they don’t have a voice in the industry.

Thank You

Thank you all so much for taking the time to look over this page. It means so much to me as a filmmaker of immigrants parents to try and tell a story that I feel needs to be told.
