Esmeralda Hernandez

Headshot by Madison Lloyd

I am a multimedia artist and filmmaker, born and raised in the South Side of San Antonio. I received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019. I’ve always loved art, movies and TV. Growing up surrounded by an immensely talented, proud, and multifaceted Latino community, I longed to see that beautiful representation in movie theaters and TV screens. In my art, I strive to reflect that lack of representation through the array of personalities and tales of the people I grew up around, allowing audiences to see our community outside of the small boxes we’ve been shoved into for centuries. My short films so far explore the American experience and other worlds, putting Latina/x protagonists at the forefront of the story.
