Storyboard Text

  • Papa Who Wakes Up Tired in the Dark
  • Papa tells me one morning in my room. Esta muerto, and then as if he just heard the news himself, crumples like a coat and cries, my brave Papa cries. I have never seen my papa cry and i don't know what to do.
  • Your abuelito is dead
  • I know he will have to go away, that he will take a plane to Mexico.
  • All the uncles and aunts will be there, and they will have a black-and-white photo taken in front of the tomb with flowers shaped like spears in a white vase because this is how they send the dead away in that country.
  • Because Esperanza I am the oldest, my father has told me first, and now it's her turn to tell the others.
  •  Papa, who wakes up tired in the dark,  and is gone before they are awake, today is sitting on my bed. And I think if my own papa died what would I do.
