Somos una productora audiovisual que viene desarrollando desde el año 2015 una investigación sobre arquitectura y urbanismo en Latinoamérica, de la cual se desprenden varios proyectos de largometraje documental, cortometrajes, entrevistas, artículos y fotografía.
Nuestros trabajos han sido expuestos en los festivales de cine de arquitectura más importantes del mundo como el de Nueva York, Rotterdam, Venecia y Nueva Zelanda entre otros. Además de bienales como la de Suiza o Seoul.
Nos interesan las personas capaces de redibujar los límites de sus disciplinas y cuestionar su hacer. Desarrollamos proyectos autogestionados, además de encargos para distintas plataformas e instituciones. En los proyectos propios tenemos un especial interés por Latinoamérica, al ser una región en constante crisis que la obliga a reinventarse.
Katerina Kliwadenko, periodista chilena, junto con Mario Novas, arquitecto español, somos las personas detrás de estos trabajos.
