Andrea Diaz Cardona
In my practice, I capture non-fiction situations and stories through different documentary formats as a way to expand our collective memory and oral history. I experiment with the possibilities that the medium of audio, film, and web offers for expression, storytelling and collective creation. I have a double BA in Philosophy and in Journalism. Currently, I am doing an MFA in Film Production at Concordia and, as part of the ALlab team, I coordinate and explore the use of spaces, equipment and technologies to help the creation and research projects plan and build their best outcome. At the Lab, I have found a perfect environment to explore research-creation related to memory, oral history, identity and the role of listening in the process of sharing difficult stories, especially in the post-conflict context.
