YASHIRA PONCE

Director. Writer. Storyteller.

About Me

I am a Honduran-American independent film director and writer with over 7 years experience in the entertainment industry. I care deeply about consuming and crafting stories which feature complex female leads, with diverse casts that represent the real world, and with urgent stories that need to be told now.

Thematic

My major themes are feminism, mental health, diversity, family, and social issues, and though I lean towards dramatic projects, I love exploring these themes in every possible genre. One of my core values as a storyteller is that no matter what subject I’m tackling, my aim is to create uplifting work that will represent a positive experience for anyone watching.
