De-indiginezed filmmaker born in México City. Through a poetic, ludic and sensory approach, her work explores questions of territory, nature, legacy and identity that traverse her Brown body and her intimate sphere.
Titixe (2018), her first feature documentary in which she holds directing, editing, producing and cinematography credits, has been selected in more than forty international film festivals and collected several awards. The film was included in Sector Cine's list of "All Time 100 Best Mexican Films".
In 2019, she was selected as a Flaherty Seminar – Professional Development Fellow (Flaherty Seminar, NY) and was awarded the Charles C. Guggenheim Emerging Artist Award (Full Frame FF, NC).
In 2022, she debuted as an opera stage director for Opera Lafayette’s Silvain which premiered in NYC’s Museo del Barrio and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center. Later this year, she will premiere her new short film as a director, producer, screenwriter and co-editor, “Eclipsis”, produced by Mexico’s National University Cinematheque (Filmoteca UNAM).
She currently works on her second film My Body Is an Expanding Star, in collaboration with Semillites Hernández Velasco. This project has been supported by FOCINE-IMCINE (2021). With it, Hernández Velasco has also been selected as a grantee of Firelight Media’s William Greaves Fund (United States, 2021).
