Presented in partnership with the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP)
Few weeks ago filmmakers Lourdes Portillo and Natalia Almada joined for a public conversation as part of the 12th edition of the annual conference of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP), that took place in Newport Beach, California. The conversation was titled as"Identity & Aesthetics: Creative Choices Based on Cultural Background" with the aim at looking at how one's culture affects an artist's point of view and vision. The discussion was centered on the effects of culture, and how one express oneself through one's media work.
The occasion was a great opportunity for both groundbreaking filmmakers to share perspectives and opinions. The conversation was moderated by Carlos A. Gutiérrez, co-founding director of Cinema Tropical.
