GSFF19 | The EthnoFictions of Laura Huertas Millán

Thu 14 March 2019

We welcome Colombian filmmaker Laura Huertas Millán, screening three works that combine multiple modes of storytelling to explore the spaces where documentary, anthropology and fiction intertwine. A triptych of rich and poignant portraits—all produced by Millán during a practice-based PhD between Beaux-Arts de Paris and Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab—deftly move between the real and the imagined; melodrama and memoir; staged performance and interview to challenge the colonial roots of ethnography, examining complex ideas around representation, womanhood, and individual and collective freedoms.

Presented by Open City Documentary Festival.
