I am a documentary producer. I have been working on creating a collection of interviews about Shakespeare for the past 5 years. I was also the chief interviewer for the historic “Globe to Globe Shakespeare Festival” at Shakespeare’s Globe in London in 2012.
I head the U.C.B. Shakespeare Program which develops audio-visual/digital materials for the teaching of Shakespeare such as the video documentaries “Shakespeare and the Globe” (distributed by Films for the Humanities),and “Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Restored” and “Shakespeare and the Spanish Connection” (both distributed by TMW Media). In addition to the above-cited web site, “Shakespeare’s Staging,” we have also developed Milton material, such as the documentary “Milton by Himself” (Films for the Humanities) and a website: http://miltonrevealed.berkeley.edu

I am a 3rd year PhD student at UW’s Department of Comparative Literature, Cinema and Media Studies, where I also work as a teaching assistant. I am currently working towards a dissertation that revolves around non-fiction cinema in Mexico between 1961 and 1987. I mainly study political and social documentaries around the globe through the prism of montage, human face, city, sound and silence, fiction and truth. In the past I have published an essay on 1940s Indian cinema
