NALIP Member Daniel Eduvijes Carrera Reflects on His Time at Djerassi

Posted by NALIP on February 15, 2018

Daniel Eduvijes Carrera recently had an article featured by Djerassi, where he discussed his time in their residence program and his background as a first generation Mexican-American filmmaker. His article got in depth about how the program allowed him to step away from the rigid expectations and deadlines he set for himself and instead focus on the art of creating and collaborating with others. His experience in the program also helped shape his relationship with his identity as a member of an often under-represented community, and how that could be something that drove his work instead of inhibited it. Carrera previously won the 2017 Djerassi Residency Award for the development of his debut feature screenplay, Místicos, a supernatural drama that explores spiritual development and gay identity amid the rise of exorcism in rural Mexico.
