By José Cruz González

Directed by Theresa May

Join us for a live YOUTUBE Premiere on April 30, at 7:30 PM!

"Watermelon Kisses" and "Marisol’s Christmas" will stream on our YouTube page from April 30-June 30, 2021. Don’t miss it!

In "Watermelon Kisses," two brothers tease one another about what happens when you swallow a watermelon seed, but the story is much larger than this as the boys are named for the Mayan and Aztec gods Tlāloc and Quetzal.

In "Marisol’s Christmas," a family flees over the border from Mexico to the United States on Christmas Eve and takes refuge under the overpass of a freeway bridge. There, Papa uses found objects to tell a story that gives the family hope and joy on this night of nights.
