About the Film

Run time: 72-minutes

Bridges is a film about a Dreamer, told by a Dreamer; a love letter to the plight of immigrants and to the magic city that is home to so many of them.

Bridges follows Maria Cecilia, a high school valedictorian originally from Venezuela, growing up in Miami who grapples with her fate and her identity as graduation day approaches. Meanwhile, her mother, Violeta, veers too close to a ghost from the past. And Gaby, her younger sister, swears she has found the answer to it all: winning the lottery.
