“I always admired film’s ability to spotlight and engage with different perspectives," said Garcia. Growing up, I was taught the tradition of looking up to La Virgen de Guadalupe for comfort and protection…I believe part of her power is that she's an unexpected hero. "For me, film always served as a window looking out to the multitudes of the world. Sacredness is held within us and cannot be deciphered by an outer appearance.” I give thanks for that and cherish that — because if it's true for her, it's true for me and my sisters. Its imagery and emotion have deeply influenced my work as a songwriter and storyteller. Her power is not defined by her physique.
