Censored Love: The Dream Of Two Young Hispanic Film Entrepreneurs

Filmmakers usually faced difficult challenges in the beginning of their careers but for young entrepreneurs Sarah Gamazo and Mario Garza their adventure is just starting.

These two young Hispanic filmmakers from Spain and Mexico, are risking everything to make their first film "Censored Love" a reality.

VIX caught up with the director of the film, Mario Garza and we talked about his new upcoming project and Kickstarter Campaign.

VIX: What's "Censored Love" about?

Mario Garza: The film centers around a romantic drama set in two different time periods (2015/1969). A "story within a story" movie, where two narratives eventually intersect. Right now we are currently running a Kickstarter Campaign on www.censoredlovefilm.com to get all the funds we need in order to make this movie happen. If we don't get to our $80,000 in 15 days, we won't receive any of the $30,000 we have raised so far.

VIX: Why do you think this project will succeed ?

MG: "This movie could be one of the first LGBTQ films with a "story within a story" storytelling structure. That's huge because we want to give underrepresented communities hope. We all deserve a chance to be heard. It doesn't matter where you come from.

As filmmakers, we want to highlight that truth to self is the only noble path in life. It sounds like it's a no brainer, but in reality, it’s very hard to be yourself.

VIX: How did you get inspired and how did you get on board with this idea?

MG: The beauty of the Valdizarbe Valley, the city of Obanos in Navarra,Spain and the people from it. We want to film there because the story was born in this small city which is around 20 min away from Pamplona. My main connection to this beautiful town is my wife and working partner Sarah who grew up there.

VIX: Only those who dare to try to follow their dreams, will have a chance at finding eternal happiness. Are you living the dream?

MG: Not yet. Right now we are following our dreams, and hopefully once we catch them, we will live our dreams.
