Telling Real Stories with Cinema Major Marilyn Flores

Friday, May 18, 2018

SKYLINE VIEW (SKYLINE COLLEGE, SAN BRUNO) -- The end of a journey is only the beginning for Marilyn Flores, a former Skyline College student. She has continued her film studies at San Francisco State and will be turning in her short film thesis this May to hopefully graduate in the fall of 2018.

Her short film titled Dream Little Astronaut is about a little girl from Latin America who wants to become an astronaut and moves with her parents to the United States and even though moving opens up new doors and opportunities for her, it is not easy. It is shot from the perspective of the immigrant girl and her struggles in the pursuit of her dream. As an immigrant herself, Flores wanted to stay true to the experiences that children who don’t hope to move to the United States go through.
