Research

My research focus is on Argentine cinema, particularly the connections between cinema and fine arts, as well as the more experimental spheres of the moving image, such as video art and the creative documentary film trend. My research interests also include Latin American cinema and video, and issues related to visual culture, cultural studies and Latin American studies.

Supervision

Karol C. Valderrama Burgos (2015 - present): 'The representation of female stereotypes in Colombian fiction feature films'

I would welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate students, particularly in the following areas:

  • Argentine cinema
  • Latin American cinema
  • Documentary film
  • Video art
  • Experimental film and video
