Director's Cut of the official MLB "Opening Day" commercial and the inaugural piece for the #PonleAcento campaign.
I can't express how much it meant to me as a Latina, the daughter of two South American immigrants, to direct this spot celebrating cultural pride; especially in today's sociopolitical climate. I'm additionally humbled by the fact that I am the first woman to ever direct a commercial for Major League Baseball.
Here's to all of those on the field who are proudly wearing accents on their jerseys... and to all the women behind the cameras who wish to capture such things and more.
Infinite thanks to MLB, LatinWorks, Nunchaku, and my DP Lowell A. Meyer.
