Videography

LIMBO (2019, 25 Mins)

watch trailer

A oneiric journey through Alex’s life as a former FARC guerrilla leads to a reckoning with the devil inside of him. Alex tells his story of war and its legacy inside of a truck transformed into a camera obscura, a space where dreams suffuse with reality and a life in limbo is illuminated.

TREES TROPIQUES (2009, 30 mins)

 

Set in the mouth of the Amazon basin, this family portrait gets tricky when the ethics of deforestation and the documentary encounter intersect. Trees Tropiques subtly and provocatively asks, ‘Who has the right to cut?’ — trees and footage.

 

The video has screened at film festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner, and at various universities in Europe, Latin America, and the U.S. 

 

 

Photography 

Shooting Cameras for Peace (2001-2009) 

 

Shooting Cameras for Peace is a participatory photography project that teaches photography to young people who have been displaced by the armed conflict in Colombia and have settled in informal neighborhoods on the outskirts of Bogotá. I began Shooting Cameras for Peace in 2001, and as a Colombian non-profit it was active until 2009. Now the archive is housed in the Museum of Bogotá.

 

The project has exhibited from venues that range from the facades of the students homes to the main foyer of the United Nations General Assembly building. For more information see: www.shootingcameras.org

Children's Visions & Voices,

Rights and Realities in South Africa (2004-2005)

Between 2004 and 2005 I worked as a documentary researcher for the Children's Rights Center in South Africa as a Lewis Hine Fellow from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. I traveled to every province and worked with families to create an exhibition showing the range and depth of the challenges facing children across the country. The exhibition continues to circulate in South Africa for educational and advocacy purposes.
