Gladys is a short film that I'm writing and directing for my Innovation Academy Independent Project. This short tells the story of a thirteen-year-old girl, that arrives in Lima in the 80's, and her first job experience. A house where she is abused; verbally and physically. It's a story filled with drama and tragedy. Filming for the short film begun and ended in the first week of May 2017 (May 4th to May 5th), and was edited on the second and third week of May.
"Revienta tu Burbuja" was a collaborative photo exhibition that I participated. For this project, I collaborated with all of my Innovation Academy 2019 class members. Our primary goal was to investigate a problem that we spotted in Lima and find an end goal; we would express our knowledge in a photo exhibition. I investigated, along Valentina Soriano, a problem that we believed that plagued Lima, lack of education. And after studying through five stages, we found that the solution would be an after school program that would help these kids search for and develop their passion; whether it was art or cooking. We located an institution 40 minutes away from our campus, a school that sits in one of the areas with the highest crime rate in La Molina (the district we focused on)

For our third and final project for the first year of the Innovation Academy, our primary task was to produce a website that would introduce the 'Limeñan' community to outsiders. Our mission statement states: "Being a newbie is never easy. We want to help you experience the true Lima and make it your new home.". My role in this magazine was to produce a successful marketing campaign that would ensure the success of our magazine, Sitios.
For my CAS Project, I chose to write a screenplay alongside my frequent artistic collaborator, Camila Perez.
‘Madura’ tells the story of a woman’s journey to maturity through three stages in her life; childhood, teenage years, and adulthood.
The screenplay’s first draft was just finished, yet we’re eager to begin working on the second draft, to improve further our work and hope for it to become an actual film someday.
The link to the first draft will be uploaded soon.
