DIRECTOR: Dino Dinco

The smoky voice and lush words of young San Antonio teacher and poet, Joe Jimenez, guides the viewer through a snapshot of his early life. Preconceived notions are challenged as we experience Jimenez, his body covered in gang tattoos, methodically ironing his clothes (a domestic action often thought of as ‘women’s work’) while speaking of his love for another man: his ‘first vato.’
