Say Goodbye Before You Leave

Unreleased
“Say Goodbye Before You Leave”
In the face of a pandemic, a seasoned cook and her son fearlessly venture into the food truck business, leaving their jobs behind.
Originally intended as a commercial for family members Oscar and his mother, the documentary took on a new and powerful direction when their business unexpectedly closed down. As we dug for the story, Devin, Christo, and I struggled to create a compelling narrative using the limited resources available. However, a light bulb moment in the editing room led us to transform the film into a poignant love letter to Oscar and his mother while simultaneously shedding light on the realities of the food truck industry. The resulting documentary is a testament to their struggle and a powerful reminder of the challenges that small business owners face. A big inspiration for this piece was the New York Times mini-doc, Long Term Parking, where an "airport lot in Los Angeles becomes an improvised village of airline workers."
