Christian Del Rio — who goes by Chris — is a Mexico City native who has lived and worked in the US for most of her life. From an early age she developed a strong interest in the Arts and Psychology, which ultimately evolved to her becoming an independent filmmaker. She currently works as a short filmmaker, but hopes to transition to feature films in the near future. Her primary interest in film is its unique power to evoke emotional responses in audiences. She hopes to use this to inspire the next generation of audiences to think critically and empathetically about the world, the way her favorite films affected and challenged her growing up.
