About Oscar

I'm a borderland bilingual Mexican filmmaker and writer. I'm an optioned screenwriter with scripts and short films that have placed highly and won awards in festivals and contests around the world such as the Sundance Lab and the Austin Film Festival. My prose work has appeared in the New York Times, The Wire's Dream Magazine, Levadura and Somos en Escrito. My love of storytelling has stemmed from filmmaking and impacted different aspects of my life. And although I deal with different genres and subjects, my main aspiration is to bring unique, fresh perspectives to stories about the border. I feel they are necessary now more than ever. Currently seeking representation *Writes in English and Spanish *
