Growing up in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to parents who owned a bookstore, Bonnet naturally became interested in telling stories. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Audio Visual Communication at the University of Puerto Rico where she made her first short film that got her accepted into New York University’s Graduate Film Program.
Old Moon, her most recent work, has been very well received internationally. It has been an official selection at the Berlin International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and many other festivals worldwide. It won best short film at the Seattle Latino Film Festival and Second Prize King Award at NYU First Run Film Festival. Bonnet currently resides between New York and Puerto Rico as she works on her upcoming feature, Water with Salt.
