AMERICAN DREAMS DEFERRED is a feature length documentary about the life of my Puerto Rican American family who currently live in North Carolina, and my visits to see them from New York City during my last year of college.
Shot in cinema verité style, and blending diverse forms of animation, it tracks each of my family members as they struggle with various financial and health problems ranging from diabetes, kidney failure, drug addiction, and HIV.
The documentary was chosen for the 2008 Latino Producers Academy held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and went on to receive the first annual HBO-NALIP (National Association of Latino Independent Producers) Documentary Grant in 2009.
