"'Home Visit' is rooted in a very religious tradition in Latin America and Puerto Rico...of the visiting saint...I was interested in restoring faith at some point....Somehow coming to terms with the idea of living in a place for 25 years- I've been in New York City and then I just moved to Philadelphia- I needed to somehow believe that it was going to be okay. And what a clever way to do it...(LAUGHS)...to have 'Home Visit' going from one home to another, and visiting different places and getting to know all the people."
