Cinematographer & Gaffer Yessica Curiel Montoya has been bucking the norm all her life. Born in a small town in Mexico to working professionals that always encouraged her independent spirit, she set off for a film career in college and never looked back. She continued her studies in New York City and stayed on an artist's Visa that quickly led to regular gigs in the city. Often the only woman in her department & sometimes the only one on set, she was very candid with us about her experiences with everyday sexism & what it's like to be an immigrant in America today. Don't miss this very open & heartfelt conversation that covers everything from the role of artists as activists to carrying all the heavy equipment on set.
