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
