    Venezuela

    Paula Villegas is a Venezuelan filmmaker who graduated from Cuenca University with a strong engagement for video art and experimental cinema. In 2017, she made her debut as a director and presents her first short film, HOTEL ROYAL CO, with a strong feminist engagement and a photography look pretty close to fashion film style. Nowadays, she is developing two self-biographical documentary projects. The first one about her family, telling the story about her childhood in Venezuela and another one consisting on following a crossdressing character with a femenine alter ego, which makes her feel empathetic with her own conflicts as a Latin American creator woman judged by the system.
