Stories Lived

Boundless

Growing up in my small town in Andalucia I had a poster of New York on my bedroom wall. It was that cliched one of the guys sat in the sky, taking a break from building the Empire State building. They mass produce that image for tourists, but I didn’t care. That picture was my inspiration. It sounds dramatic, but I always felt like I hadn’t ‘made it’ in life unless I got to see that city before I died.

I left my town in the middle of Spain’s financial crisis. I went to London and worked in a cafe whilst making short films for anyone who replied to my posts. I built experience, made friends and saved a bit of money.

Eventually enough money to pay for a road trip across America. From San Francisco all the way to the Empire State building in New York.

I called the film Boundless because that’s how I feel now. There’s no longer one specific place in the World I need to see. And without that focus, every experience becomes my inspiration.
