Featuring the work of award-winning filmmaker, Jon Ayon
Author: Jon Ayon
I am a Mestizo filmmaker based out of Oakland, CA. I am originally from Los Angeles, where my parents immigrated to in the seventies; my father from Mexico and my mother from El Salvador. I hold a B.A. in Cinema from San Francisco State University and have created 11 short films. My personal experiences have influenced my passion for social justice filmmaking. I make films that challenge the status quo and showcase the rich languages and cultures I grew up with as a child.
