Highlandtown is an exploration of the "latino neighborhood" in the city of Baltimore, MD. The short film is silent and most of it was done in single frames. Using single frames as a metaphor for anxiety, Gomide explores the neighborhood that has a heavy concentration of latino immigrants – one of the minority groups that has been heavily targeted throughout the Trump Administration.
Filmed, directed, and edited by Camila Franco Ribeiro Gomide.
