Director Biography - Josue A. Martinez
A native from Guatemala City, Josue has spent the last six years running filmmaking workshops with teens in Bali and other areas of Eastern Indonesia. He has been an active filmmaker since the early 2010s, with works that revolve around cultural identity, youth and coming of age, mixed with elements of magic and fantasy, hoping to paint a better world for future generations. His short film, "Creatures of the Wind", is a rehearsal for his feature length project entitled "Indigo Skies".
Creatures of the Wind was inspired by my work at a creative center for youth. During that time I was able to see myself reflected in many of the youth who came to our program. I realized that such transitional years are much like a nightmare in which some wake up to a better reality, some wake up to a different nightmare and some are never able to wake up again. This short film is a homage to those years, hoping that younger generations feel heard and know that some of us out there are aware of how hard life can be at such a young age.
