A Romantic Road Movie / Drama Jessica Alvarez is twenty-four and bored. She craves independence and adventure; she needs to feel alive. What she has is an MBA, a safe corporate gig, a bland boyfriend, a steady supply of pills for her ADHD and a room at home with a suffocating mother. She wants to assert her rights, but all that remains of her independence is a stargazing hobby and a BMW roadster. Then one summer morning she meets a bad-boy car mechanic who cons her into going on-the-lam with him for a short spell... that becomes a long spell, from the Hudson Valley up to Maine. They hike the Appalachian Trail by day and enjoy the stars at night. And slowly but surely, she falls in love with him. But is he too good to be true?
Directing the second pass of "Starlit" marks Andrea Ocampo's feature debut. Tasked with working around existing scenes from a costly shoot the year before, she was able to draw upon her Latin American heritage and bilingual communication skills to inform the protagonist's experience.
When not on set, she works full-time in media production at a global non-profit organization.
