DIRECTOR/PRODUCER OF UNSEEN
Originally from the Philippines, Set Hernandez is a queer, undocumented immigrant, who dedicates their filmmaking to expand the portrayal of their community on screen. Their films primarily focus on the intersectionality of immigration with other experiences, be it abolition, labor, healthcare, or disability. Set's background in community organizing is rooted in collaborative practices that engage participants in a culturally relevant model. With a research background in film studies and linguistics, Set brings an analytical approach to cinema and social impact by celebrating narratives from perspectives that are often overlooked. Set is interested in complicating dominant narratives and pushing the aesthetics of film.
