Short Film (In Development)


Grasa explores the complexities of identity, physical insecurities, and cultural stereotypes. It exists between the grotesque and the beautiful — a grease that leaves a strange taste in our mouths.

Synopsis: Lina, a young first-generation Mexican-American, arrives in Mexico City with the goal of exploring her heritage. Despite initial setbacks, she commits to immersing herself in the local culture in the most “authentic” way possible. A chance encounter with a greasy taco leads her to being kidnapped and drawn into an underground cult of 'grasa,' of grease. A monster awaits beneath the earth, one that forces Lina to confront her deepest fears and insecurities, while awakening a profound transformation of self-identity.
