No borders, just roots

October 08, 2006

I'M happily surprised that The Times featured these excellent Mexican directors who are key to the future of cinema in Hollywood. ["A Bond Beyond Borders, Oct. 1]. I'm very proud of their efforts and of the future of Latinos in the entertainment industry.

This is a great quote and so true. "Growing up as young filmmakers, we felt there should be no borders that define who we are, but there should be roots that define who we are," says Del Toro. "The difference is that borders confine you, roots nurture you."
