Filmmaker Talk: Diego Gutiérrez - hosted by VEVAM Fund

    An in-depth interview with director Diego Gutiérrez. Filmmaker, and board member of VEVAM Fund, Marjoleine Boonstra talks with him about his creative methods and views on filmmaking.

    Diego Gutiérrez is an intriguing Mexican-Dutch documentary filmmaker, screenwriter, and video artist. After majoring in art at the UNAM in Mexico City and Rijksacademie in Amsterdam, Gutiérrez participated in the Binger Filmlab Doc Lab program, making two elements—deep immersion into the worlds of his characters and constant experimental search—the signature of his cinematic works. Many of Diego’s films result from intense and longstanding artistic collaborations. In 2013 his film Partes de una familia/Parts of a Family won the Golden Calf for Best Long Documentary. In the brand new The Mirror and the Window, Diego returns to familiar characters at a dramatic moment, to then give way to another profound cinematic connection. The talk is highlighted by excerpts of Diego’s various films.

    The Mirror and the Window has its world premiere in IDFA Envision competition.
