About the Filmaker
BMCC alumna Carla Franchesca Robles was born in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, Robles attended Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo and moved to New York with her family in 2010.After earning her associate degree at BMCC, she transferred to the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program in Film and Video at The City College of New York, CUNY, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2019 through the college’s first documentary track.
At City College, Robles completed films including Layers of a Baker, which follows the daily life of a pastry chef who moved to New York from the Dominican Republic and owns his own bakery in upper Manhattan. Through lingering close-ups of the baker preparing dough, pulling trays out of the large ovens and expertly squeezing out tubes of frosting, the film showcases the artistry that underlies his financial struggles.
