Rosemary, a 65-year-old widow, is crippled by grief. In search of a remedy for her depression and insomnia, she ventures to a council estate to buy marijuana.



Born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, and spurred by my early education in philosophy at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, I came to London in 2001 to immerse myself in new experiences. In London, I studied at The London College of Communications and worked in the film industry in production and editing. After finishing my studies at LCC, I was accepted at The London Film School to pursue a Masters degree in Directing. During my time at film school, I honed my skills exploring different types of story telling and film formats. Upon completion of my graduation film, 'Rosemary Jane' (2013), I was awarded an MA with distinction. 'Rosemary Jane' has been selected and screened at numerous film festivals around the world, premiering at Palm Springs Short Film Festival.
