TCL CHINESE 6 THEATRES
Hydrocodone is a music video dedicated to the memory of our past and future selves. It’s an abstract journey through a young man’s memories before and after a big accident.
I’m constantly contemplating death and the way we honor it, so I wanted to depict a funeral scene where people are celebrating the passing of a different version of ourselves. The protagonist, Cuco, is leading and celebrating in a funeral procession because he is more alive than ever.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR(S)
“JAZMIN GARCIA is a Director based in Los Angeles. She has been developing her body of work through music videos and short documentaries. Her work explores themes of immigration and cultural assimilation, using family histories and her own experience as a second generation Mexican-Guatemalan-American to weave intimate stories of trauma, magic, amor, and the perseverance of hope.
Her short films evoke moments of timeless beauty, reveal the sweetness in individual struggle, lend visibility to, and inspire those whose stories are so often left out of the picture.”
