By José Cruz González

Directed by Theresa May

Join us for a live YOUTUBE Premiere on April 30, at 7:30 PM!

The cast and production team will be running the live chat on our YouTube page during the premiere and would love to interact with you!

"Watermelon Kisses" and "Marisol’s Christmas" will stream on our YouTube page from April 30-June 30, 2021. Don’t miss it!

In "Watermelon Kisses," two brothers tease one another about what happens when you swallow a watermelon seed, but the story is much larger than this as the boys are named for the Mayan and Aztec gods Tlāloc and Quetzal.

In "Marisol’s Christmas," a family flees over the border from Mexico to the United States on Christmas Eve and takes refuge under the overpass of a freeway bridge. There, Papa uses found objects to tell a story that gives the family hope and joy on this night of nights.

Artist statement:

"Border Lands 2019, A Sketchbook Journey" is an experience on both sides of the Arizona and Mexico borders. Migrants and asylum seekers, individuals and families from Mexico and Central America desperately seek the American Dream of safety and opportunity. The sketches are amplified with the text to tell their story as well as the humanitarian aid migrants receive from several nonprofit organizations, including the Samaritans, Humane Borders, No More Deaths, Kino Border Initiative, and the Border Community Alliance. The Sisters of Notre Dame in Douglas, Arizona have a presence in the border lands providing their hospitality to all who hunger, thirst, and are in need of compassion. The goal of all these groups is building bridges, not walls. 

As an artist, the sketchbook is my primary means for recording first-hand experience and events. Later, in my studio, I transform select sketches into wood panels. These social justice panels frequently become circulating exhibitions at educational institutions and community art centers, and permanent public installations.

Artist Statement:

A series of seven self portraits made by Thea in the crescendo of her isolation experience. An experiment of loneliness, fearing the passage of time, seeking identity, and loving creativity.

I know why I originally made it, the idea - see what would happen if I made the same photos over a span of time of different days. And I know why in retrospect I made it - trying to make myself known, show people I exist. To combat time and it's forgetting and prove that subtlety matters.
