1. Etnografía Audiovisual Reflexiva, trata sobre el proceso de realización de una etnografía a partir de mi barrio de residencia, en la ciudad de Santiago de Chile. El estudio se centra en la ocupación de sitios eriazos por parte de grupos de "nomades urbanos" , cuyas estrategias de sobrevivencia se basan en la explotación de los fluctuantes recursos de la calle. (reciclaje de basura, cartones, plásticos y metales, comercio callejero, caridad, etc. Esta es una reflexión autosituada, con tintes autobiograficos, y trata sobre las relaciones interculturales, inter-sociales en un tradicional barrio de Santiago en proceso de modernización acelerada.

  3. There are some fundamental principles regarding the construction of an acoustically healthy society, one where we can exist within the sounds of life. Respect towards voice and words, sonic awareness, the awakening of the sense of hearing. To preserve the sounds that tend to fade out, while remaining open to the sounds that spring out of each technological stride. To build an aural idiom that interprets its own symbolism. To accept the silence, enforcing it in the due moments. And, above all else, to listen.

  5. Maybe some people are just born unlucky? This documentary film weaves together a diverse collection of different voices from London’s Jewish community to explore the concept of “luck” or “mazel”. From lucky charms and curses to global economics and quantum physics, this humorous and philosophical piece of visual poetry navigates the boundaries between religion and superstition to ask how the invisible hand of mazel has touched us all.

    I am a visual anthropologist, currently making a ethno-fiction film looking at U.K Wrestlers.
    This is a urban anthropology ethno-fiction looking at sensory truth and performance.
    I have run into a unexpected cost in the making of the film, and am fundraising to meet the small costs to make this film happen
    If your could share this through your social media it would be a huge help
