ADRIANA VILA GUEVARA
Venezuelan filmmaker, artist and anthropologist. Her work moves between the realms of documentary creation, ethnographic research, and experimental film.
In 2008, she began ethnographic field work on Afro-Venezuelan memory and representation that led her to meet and live with Belen Palacios for 4 months in her community: Tapipa. From that experience and upon completion of her Master degree in Anthropology and Ethnography, she decides to go back to Tapipa and make a documentary about Belén. But Belen suddenly disappears. Though, for her surprise Belén is not an absence.
Currently completing a doctoral research in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Universidad de Barcelona with a dissertation entitled “The Making of BELEN: rituals for the creation of a portrait, authorship, representation and imaginary in documentary filmmaking”.
