Yolanda

Posted in Tijuana, Yolanda, Zona Norte on July 1, 2010 by zonanorte09

I was down in Zona Norte this week and ran into Yolanda from this doc and she told me many people the past year have spotted her “from that YouTube video” and hired her as a guide for the area.

She’s basically a good woman, down-and-out, and if you do need a guide to find what you want or keep out of danger areas, do hire her. She’s easy to find.

Mainly, I was tickled that people watching my doc would remember her and tell her. I may do a follow-up interview with her as she has a lot of great stories.

I haven’t updated since the completion of the doc last year. There was some talk of expanding into a feature doc but that has not happen.

After screening at Cannes 2009, the doc has been screened at a couple of other internationa film fests and has been viewed by tens of thousands on Youtube and CNN iReport.
