GRANDMA, MI AMOR is an animated short film, inspired by a true story surrounding the nurturing and loving relationship between an African-American grandmother and her granddaughter. Despite their difference in age, Jasmine and her nurturing Grandmother Gwen are inseparable and do everything together.


Though this story is about my relationship with my grandmother, the characters for the short film are based on my grandmother and my daughter, Jasmine. The story represents millions of people that have an unbreakable bond with their grandparents, parents, and loved ones. 

In the beginning of the story, Grandma Gwen nurtures and takes care of her granddaughter Jasmine, raising her to be a kind and bright young woman. By the end of the film, it is now Jasmine's turn to lovingly care for her aging grandmother who receives a dementia diagnosis.


This short film will be emotionally moving, fun and full of love; a celebration of nurturing grandparents everywhere. This story was created to advocate for diversity in animation films and to highlight the universal bond between nurturing grandparents and grandchildren.

"a celebration of nurturing grandparents everywhere."
