Juvie skating in the streets of Mexico City

Filming for a month in Mexico was a weird experience. I’m still not sure what to think of it, or how to process it. I’ve been in a strange state of apathy/malaise ever since we returned to the states. It’s a lot of work to be “on” for that amount of time. I did not […]
