Yo soy un videotaper based in Los Angeles

Jazmin Garcia is a Director and cinephile based in Los Angeles. She has been developing her body of work through music videos and short documentaries.

Her work explores themes of immigration and cultural assimilation, using family histories and her own experience as a first generation Mexican-Guatemalan-American to weave intimate stories of trauma, magic, amor, and the perseverance of hope.

Her short films evoke moments of timeless beauty, reveal the sweetness in individual struggle, lend visibility to, and inspire those whose stories are so often left out of the picture.
