  • I am a film historian and filmmaker. My research focuses on German and Latin American film and transnational cinematic relations between Europe and Latin America. One of my recent projects traces the participation of Chilean film personnel in German cinema East and West during the Cold War era. In 2016, I made a feature-length documentary, Películas escondidas. Un viaje entre el exilio y la memoria (in collaboration with Alejandro Areal Vélez) on this subject. Currently, I co-edit a volume about neoliberalism and Latin American cinema, and finish a monograph about German-Jewish-Uruguayan filmmaker Peter Lilienthal.
