Logline: Two isolated women bond by sharing their lives from a distance through their apartment windows. They are blocks apart, but despite their efforts, will never meet. Two women. Two windows. Two realities.
“Windows” is the story of Luz, a woman living alone in a computer simulation who is one day confronted with a surprising development, a neighbor. The short is a near-future science fiction short that deals with the currently emerging technologies of computer-human interface and artificial intelligence and their impact on our humanity. “Windows” is a small piece of a larger story that we would like to tell; a story that will be an entertaining and meaningful contribution the discussion surrounding the impact of technology, specifically Artificial Intelligence, on our lives.

About the Film:
As the development of Artificial Intelligence has a profound effect on the entire human race, it is important to portray diversity in stories with technology as a central element. We are excited to be working with NALIP and to be a part of their tireless efforts to support and promote Latino filmmakers. “Windows” is a female-driven story told by a Mexican born director, is a bilingual film with characters speaking both English and Spanish. This is a rarity in genres like Sci-Fi. The larger story that we would like to tell involves characters from around the world.
Current Status: We are currently fundraising for post-production, including VFX and sound.
