Storyboard Text

  • "Geraldo No Last Name"  By Sandra Cisneros 
  • She met him at a dance. Said he worked at a restaurant, but she couldn't remember which one. His name was Geraldo. That's all, no last name.
  • How was she to know she'd be the last one to see him alive. An accident, don't you know. Hit-and-run
  • He was just someone she danced with. somebody she met that night. That's the story. She said again and again. Once to the  hospital people and twice to the police.
  • Only Marian can't explain why it mattered, the hours and hours in the emergency room. Maybe if he hadn't had lost so much blood. if the surgeon had come, they would know who to notify and where.
  • Marian who was sent home. How does she explain this? She met him at a dance. Geraldo in his skinny shirt and green pants. 
  • His name is Geraldo. And his home is an another country. The ones he left behind are far away, will wonder, shrug, remember. We never heard from him ever again.
