Apart from her role as an actress, Eva has been steering her journey as a director, with her directorial debut screened at Cannes Film Festival 2023.

The talented director spoke candidly about the underrepresentation of female directors, especially non-white ones, in Hollywood.

 "I felt the weight of my community, I felt the weight of every female director because we don’t get a lot of bites at the apple," she shared during the Kering Women in Motion talk at Cannes, addressing her feature directorial debut, Flamin’ Hot.

Eva, whose directorial portfolio includes episodes of "Black-ish" and "Jane the Virgin," highlighted the significant time lapse since the last studio film directed by a Latina.

"We can’t get a movie every 20 years," she asserted. "So the problem is if this movie fails people go, ‘Oh, Latino stories don’t work.’ ‘Oh, female directors really don’t cut it.’"

Eva pointed out the disparity between opportunities given to her and her white male counterparts. "A White male can direct a $200 million film, fail and get another one. Right?" she said.

With the debut of Flamin’ Hot, she felt the immense pressure of this one chance. "I gotta make it right, I gotta do it well, I gotta work twice as hard, I gotta out hustle everybody in the room, I gotta work twice as fast, I gotta do it twice as cheap … You really carry the generational traumas with you into the making of the film," she confessed.

Despite the challenges, Longoria remained determined and positive. "I was just like determined and excited for the journey and we have a beautiful film," she said.

Flamin' Hot, according to Disney+, is an inspiring narrative based on a 2013 memoir. It tells the captivating story of Richard Montañez, a Frito Lay janitor who revolutionised the food industry. The film stars Jesse Garcia, Tony Shalhoub, Dennis Haysbert, Emilio Rivera and Annie Gonzalez.
