Jessica is a Mexican-American Actor & Writer//Director on a mission to normalize complex & authentic narratives about the Southwest Mexican-American community through film. Her upcoming short film Pozole was awarded a $25K grant, along with a $250K marketing deal, and is set to be the first narrative short film executive produced by the artful data-transfer company WeTransfer. Her style is both comedic and heart-wrenching, pulling from political and societal structures to create commentaries around the need for social change. Her first feature film Lowrider delves into the colorful, complicated world of Latina women living in La Reforma (the Mexican projects) in the 1960-80's, and is currently in development.
Her acting work has been featured/shown in some of the top publications and film festivals in the country, including to sold out houses as part of the Girl's Shorts block at Outfest 2018.
