About this event:
Un Barco di mi Mama directed by Susana Canales Barrón (7 mins)
Susana Canales Barrón is a Chicana lens-based artist and documentary filmmaker based in Northern California. She was born in Santa Ana, California, but her story begins in Sain Alto, Zacatecas. She is passionate about using her camera and unique perspective to push back against inequalities experienced by marginalized communities. The idea of bodies in motion as a form of survival is seen in her camera work which she uses as a method toward decolonizing documentary filmmaking. She is intentional about encouraging empathy, flexibility, multidisciplinarity, and critical awareness through this form of visual storytelling.
Susana graduated summa cum laude from UC Davis with a B.A. in Cinema and Digital Media and a minor in Theatre and Dance. She is currently working on an MFA in Documentary Filmmaking at Stanford.
