Cristina Gallegos is the co-director of the new Colombian narco film Birds of Passage (Pajaros de Verano). We get into why she’s reclaiming the way Colombian drug movies are seen in Hollywood, the shame Latin Americans carry with their ethnicity, why she chooses to make high-brow films, and how Latina female directors are making a difference on film. (1:10)

Then, Mexican filmmaker Antonio Chavez Trejo shares with us the secrets of how he shot an award winning film with just his iPhone and how YOU can too! (22:11)
