Bound, 5 1/2 minutes, digital video, color, sound

Bound is an experimental documentary that celebrates Graciela Carrillo’s unique story and explores ideas about homelessness, vulnerability, and visibility/invisibility. Graciela, a founding member of Las Mujeres Muralistas, shares her experiences from her time painting murals to life on the street, the struggle between wanting an audience and taking refuge in anonymity, between feeling like somebody and nobody.
