Maya Gonzalez-Skinner – Golden Years

In my film, Golden Years, I want to document my experiences as a teenage girl in combination with some reflections of my childhood. Building and fusing these memories memories together, I’ve interspersed footage that my parents captured on their phones with handheld, impromptu clips from my life in high school,, to fully illustrate my transition from childhood to who I am today.  Overall, I want this to be an expressive way of showing how I’ve grown up, while giving appreciation to the longer journey that led me to this point in my life.
