Ileana’s storytelling focuses on the complexities and diversities of characters to reveal truths in human interactions. Vasquez's work reveals her background in fine arts, experimental and improvisational theater and employs cutting-edge techniques and perspectives to create a surrealist balance with the emotion of a story. Ileana is influenced by Kubrick, Buneul, Cocteau, Tarkovsky, del Toro, Truffaut, Inarritu, Malick, Hitchcock, Nolan, Cassavetes and Chytlalova (Czech New Wave).

A self-taught filmmaker, she has also studied acting in Paris, experimental theater in Los Angeles under Rachel Rosenthal and is an exhibited photographer.
