In a recent interview, Yeniffer Behrens goes into detail on the making of “Mi Amor”:
“Everything I have written thus far is inspired by true events that I overcame as a young girl. The choices I made for better or worse in my 20’s… I have learned that all of it is meant for growth and healing. “Mi Amor” started as an idea with one of my best friends, to create a platform for our kids to star in. To play non-stereotypes and experience what it truly means to Greenlight Yourself Now as an ACTorprenuer. To take initiative in creating your own opportunities and not wait for anyone to give you permission to do what you love. This family love story is universal because we all have a first love, a lost love and as a mom, a forever love. I am literally flying into Atlanta to participate in the Georgia Latino International
Film Festival to screen Award winning MI AMOR!”
Q: Tell us about your movie Sins & Virtues which was filmed during the pandemic and just won Best Anthology Film at the DLAFF?
Yeniffer Behrens – A: This film was done out of pure love for what we do! We are creatives, storytellers, artists, and family.
During the darkest of times, we chose to unite and create. Looking forward to the red-carpet premiere party was the motivation for our EP/ Mastermind Alexito Bonito Mendoza. He called my husband Mauricio & I on April 21, 2020, @ 7 pm.
He wasn’t done pitching the brilliant idea before we said YES! WE ARE IN! We got to work on zoom every Wednesday and invited 13 more filmmakers and the rest is history! We have won several awards and counting…the film festival tour continues.
