Laura Huertas Millán

  • Laura Huertas Millán was born in Bogota, Colombia, and has been living in France since 2001. Her films and expanded cinema works consider aesthetics and politics through a range of narratives and formats. In 2009 she started a series of works around the notion of exoticism, shot between European tropical gardens and the Colombian Amazon, inspired by the poignant documents tracing the human zoos in France in the early XXth century, cultural anthropophagy (as expressed by Oswald de Andrade in 1928) and explorer´s journeys accounts in America. The films of this exoticism series built dialectics between ethnography and colonialism, proposing hybrid narratives with no hierarchy between genres as science-fiction, surrealism, fantasy and documentary. Since 2012, Huertas Millán has been engaged in a practise-based PhD film research on “ethnographic fictions”, developing this paradoxical and ambiguous idea in a new series.
