About the Director(s):

Camilo Mejía

Camilo Mejía

Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in 1997, Camilo Mejía always wanted to find a way to communicate. When he was 10, he had his first encounter with a camera. Since then, cinema has been part of his development as a person and as an artist. Mejía studied film and audiovisual communication at the Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC). He also took workshops offered by the Dirección General de Cine (DGCINE) and Instituto Tecnológico de Las Américas (ITLA) on cinema, with a focus on filmmaking. As an artist he is curious about the internal processes of people and how these are projected in our environment.
