Documentaries are my passion. My feature-length films HIT and LA FLOR DE LA VIDA (a Sundance Institute grantee) premiered in festivals including IDFA, True/False, Docs Barcelona and Bafici, and received, among others, an Audience Award at Festival de Malaga (Spain), a Special Jury Prize at It’s All True (Brazil), an award for best national film and two best film editing awards by Uruguay's Film Critics' Association. Currently, I'm working on a new film with co-director Claudia Abend, MOTHERS IN SILENCE, which tells stories of contemporary motherhood in a world where traditional roles of gender and family are being re-written. Aside from film, I've worked as a journalist for several media outlets, including Television Nacional Uruguay and AFP. Now, I contribute regularly with Univision Digital as a film editor, where my credits include RISING UP IN THE HEARTLAND, nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy, winner of an Online Journalism Award for Topical Reporting, and First Place Winner - Documentary Journalism at Picture of the Year International. As a content producer, I have directed and edited dozens of pieces on development issues, climate change, migration and gender for multilateral organizations including UNICEF, UNESCO, the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. I have an M.A. in Journalism and Latin American Studies from New York University, through a Fulbright Scholarship, and a B.A. in Communication from the Catholic University of Uruguay. I love collaborating and telling stories; if you want to reach me, drop a line! x.
In December 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to legalize the cultivation, sale and smoking of Marijuana. Watch as we take you behind the scenes with the activists that fought for the bill from the beginning and see the events that led the way for the passage of this monumental legislation.
Naomi Marroquín spends several days a week zigzagging the state of Iowa in a van. She is part of a team that sets up mobile clinics across the state to serve immigrants and help close gaps in access to healthcare. Serving others is something she learned from her parents. We spent the day with her to learn more about her story.
After long struggles to regain their health, marginalized and undocumented Latino workers in rural Iowa began organizing and demanding a share of the pandemic relief funds that have excluded them. The film was nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy, a winner of an Online Journalism Award for Topical Reporting, and First Place Winner - Documentary Journalism at Picture of the Year International.
