Get to know the Director Abner Vargas
Abner Alejandro Vargas is a 27 year-old Mexican-American artist born in Mexico and raised in the Mexicali-Calexico border. He graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor’s in Visual Arts – Media. He has worked in many short film projects, 48 Hour Film Festivals, marketing videos, and video editing projects.
As a filmmaker, Abner likes to tell nonlinear narrative films that explore concepts like sexuality, human connection, and mental illness. Pleasure and desire are present as a theme in one of his works with sexually fluid characters describing the complexity of sexual identity. He finds inspiration from a variety of artists such as Sam Esmail, Gaspar Noe, and Ari Aster. Abner finds ways to distort the straight and linear narrative one is used to seeing in most films by experimenting with mental spaces and mixing the reality of each character.
