"Bag Check comes from the desire to grow my skill as a storyteller. From acting to directing, there were many new 'fronts' myself and the team pushed ourselves into. Half-born of lived experience, I'm hoping the film gives some comedic relief in the topic of border crossing in Latin America, and showcases a little bit of what it means to live between two cultures."
