To celebrate Hispanic and Latin American Heritage Month, Disney has announced that it has commissioned four alumni from the award-winning nonprofit Ghetto Film School to create a short film in honour of their Hispanic and Latin American culture. The project, titled “Yo Recuerdo/ I Remember,” weaves together four personal vignettes into a premium short film that reimagines core memories and connects them to their heritage.
The four alumni include Alyse Arteaga (21 years old), Kian Cloma (24 years old), Alejandro Enrique (22 years old) and Tommy Espinal (22 years old). To create the new show, each filmmaker was provided access to a full service of production resources, including video equipment, graphic designers and editing bays in order to execute their vision. To help them execute their cinematic visions, the filmmakers were also paired with mentors from across DET who specialize in their desired career tracks.

This collaboration with Ghetto Film School is part of DET and The Walt Disney Company’s commitment to empowering the next generation of storytellers and innovators. Through educational programs, scholarships, mentoring, and technical skill-building, Disney is increasing access to careers in the media, entertainment, technology, and travel and leisure industries for teens and young adults from historically underrepresented communities.
“Yo Recuerdo/ I Remember” is available to stream exclusively on Hulu from today and will also be shared across DET’s extensive portfolio of digital platforms including ABC, ABC News, FX, Freeform, Hulu, National Geographic, Onyx Collective, and ABC Owned TV Stations between Saturday, September 15th 2023, and Sunday, October 15th 2023.
