Glasgow Short Film Festival welcomes Colombian filmmaker Laura Huertas Millán, screening three works that combine multiple modes of storytelling to explore the spaces where documentary, anthropology and fiction intertwine. A triptych of rich and poignant portraits—all produced by Millán during a practice-based PhD between Beaux-Arts de Paris and Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab—deftly move between the real and the imagined; melodrama and memoir; staged performance and interview to challenge the colonial roots of ethnography, examining complex ideas around representation, womanhood, and individual and collective freedoms.
