:: Diaz-Cortes, on La Burbuja:

"At the beginning, we thought getting people to come for interviews would be the biggest challenge. My gut told me it would work out, but I wasn’t sure until we were out in the field. What was really key for us was the recording bubble. It became this symbol and this thing that people could go to.

"There are ten stories that ended up broadcasting. From those ten stories, we have over 200 interviews that we've done in La Burbuja. The kid would bring the mother, the mother would bring the sister, and the sister would bring the aunt—it became very communal and personal."
