Living in a dystopian regime where undocumented immigrants are persecuted, two sisters, stuck in hiding, take a risk to preserve a family tradition.
Born and raised in Jackson Heights, NY, Taly Uriarte is a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community. She is a recent Film Production graduate from Brooklyn College. She fell in love with filmmaking at 10 years old. In High School, Uriarte’s passion for honing her craft earned her a spot in the New York State Summer School of the Arts. Growing up around so many different cultures, she was acutely aware of the adversity minority groups face, and seeks to tell their stories in her work. Taly’s directorial debut, “Fricasé,” — which she also wrote, produced, and edited — won the Emerging Female Filmmaker Award at the Brooklyn College Film Festival, awarded by the non-profit organization, New York Women in Film & Television.
