Director Statement

Humans are far more reactionary when something traumatic happens to the ones we love rather than ourselves. The film explores this dynamic, along with the complexities associated with female friendship. “El Viaje” discusses these themes while also tackling a bigger issue at hand — the systemic problem of misogyny in our society.
