"Ni de aquí, ni de allá"

by José Yobani López

This is a video I made about my first time visiting Meéxico two years ago and finally meeting all the family there. Needless to say, it was a deeply humbling summer filled with so much love, and it continues to feel the closest thing to home in my mind. But upon my return, I became aware of the reality that as influential as that world was, it was one I inhibited differently than my tíos and tías. As difficult as this was, it began my journey into exploring my Latinidad intentionally and it opened my eyes to the world of people that live at the intersection of borders.

To be quite honest, I still see myself living there one day, when I decide I can rest. Quién sabe cuando será, pero nadie me quita el querer morir ahí.
