Director Statement

Régulo, Isabel and family have inspired us since we first met them in 2005. It has been an honor to share the story of Café Rivense, and to collaborate with talented and generous individuals along the way. Rivense is our first film, and the culmination of seven years of pursing this passion project—we’re thrilled to share it.
