    Sabor is a story of a mixed-race Latina, Clara, in search of her place within the elite culinary world, and her place among the men in her life. After the passing of her abuelo, Clara makes drastic life changes: breaking off her engagement, quitting the French Michelin-star restaurant in Manhattan, and starting her own catering business in Queens with start-up money from her father, a successful Nuyorican restauranteur who wishes she would learn Spanish and avoid his patterns of grief and alcoholism. The transition is complicated by the familiarity of her former fiancé and the invigoration of an Instacart delivery person who challenges her ideas of success, sexuality, and identity. As her relationship with her father comes to a boiling point, the spirit of abuelo gives them a chance to start creating their own language—a language of food.
  • TENGO VOZ
    TENGO VOZ follows a young Latina, Berenice, as she navigates her first year in a Theater Arts graduate program. As she struggles to be heard within academia, the spirit of her younger self—a rebellious preteen—is drawn to her, and forces Berenice to confront her place in the arts, and this country.
