Pamela Yates’ and Paco de Onís’ introduction to filmmaking wasn’t typical.

Yates grew up in a small Irish-American community in the Appalachian Mountains, far from South America where most of her current film work takes place. During her childhood, stories were the common currency. That love of storytelling, and her exposure to economic disparity, inspired her to combine those two passions to make a difference.
