NALIP Member Alberto Belli Directing Experience on Netflix's "Casa De Las Flores"

Last summer, I got to direct the second unit of the hit show “La Casa de las Flores”, for Netflix. During my four months stay in Mexico City, I had the chance to work with the entire cast and directed many pivotal scenes throughout the series. The most memorable moment was when we were shooting a Bar Mitzvah scene that involved hundreds of extras and the main cast when the devastating earthquake hit the city. It was a moment of raw emotions that brought the cast and crew of the show even closer. To see the city come together to help a major cause is a feeling I will never forget. The phenomenal response towards the show, which tackles LGBTQ inclusion, and other themes such as equality, compassion, and family unity, made me realize how TV, more than any other medium, is bringing people together and starting conversations for change to happen. This experience confirmed that directing episodic is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
