Caren Cross - Writer, Director, Producer
Caren is a first time filmmaker who became obsessed with wanting to figure out why she and others had abandoned their lives in the U.S. to live in a small town in the mountains of central Mexico. Caren’s undergraduate degree is in painting. She was diverted from that passion after seeing Frederick Wiseman’s documentary, Titicut Follies, an expose of the abuses in a mental hospital. Graduate school came next and she subsequently worked for 27 years as a psychotherapist in private practice. Then that one-week vacation in Mexico changed the course of her life again.
Caren lives in San Miguel de Allende with her husband David. They have two grown children.
