My Republic

Is a personal exploration of the South Texas border region where my family is from. It is a portrayal of the contrast between two parallel worlds that coexists: on the one hand a visual diary of the everyday life of me and my family, and on the other hand the images of the conflicts that characterize this border region where more than a hundred migrants lose their lives each year, trying to cross the desert; a situation that often remains in the dark.
