About the Filmmaker
Award-winning Chilean Documentary Filmmaker, Journalist and Educator who tells stories about extraordinary people from underprivileged communities seldom featured in the mainstream media. Her intimate approach to subjects invites the viewer to deeply connect with their stories. As a cinematographer, her lens looks for improvised action, the type that surges from the mere inertia of life and engages the audience in a sensorial journey. She worked as a broadcast journalist for 7 years in Chile’s most prestigious TV stations, where she travelled through Latin America covering Breaking News and developing Special Reports about the communities those current events affected. This experience led her to nonfiction filmmaking. Currently teaching Documentary Filmmaking, Video Storytelling and TV News Reporting at UW-Milwaukee.
