“Stories that connect us to nature in its undomesticated states, stories that allow us to feel and to think as more-than-human beings, stories that excavate and unearth repressed ways of communicating with the natural world.”
Laura Huertas Millán is a French-Colombian artist and filmmaker whose work stands at the intersection of cinema, contemporary art, and research. Entwining experimental ethnography, ecological and decolonial thinking, historical long-term enquiries, and fiction, her moving-image work engages with strategies of resistance and survival. Sensuous and immersive, her films propose embodied, emotional, and reflexive experiences. Third spaces imagined as healing altered states.
Huertas Millán’s films have been shown at major international festivals and have won prizes at the Locarno Film Festival, FIDMarseille, Doclisboa and Videobrasil, among others. More than twenty surveys of her work have been on view around the world, screening in cinematheques and at leading festivals such as Mar del Plata and Rencontres du Documentaire de Montreal.
