BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

Born in 1989 in Punta Arenas, Chile. She spends her childhood in Valparaíso, where she studies photography in Cámara Lúcida and became deeply fascinated with the sea. In 2008 she moves to Santiago to study Art History and Cinema later in the Universidad de Chile. In 2012 she suffers a severe autoimmune spinal cord injury which left her bedridden, with the time for writing “Body, Off-center”, her degree shortfilm. With this work she won in 2017 a national fund in culture to end its postproduction. The same year she travels to Cuba to study film writing in the the EICTV (Escuela Internacional San Antonio de los Baños), also with a national fund. Her work is characterised by the use of a multidisciplinary approach in medial art and cinematography as a means to explore character’s psychology, recreating bodily sensations in the audience through audiovisual experimentation.

Romina Forno Fargo es una artista multidisciplinaria residente en Chile. Nace el 1989 en Punta Arenas. En 2008 estudia Historia del Arte y luego Cine en la Universidad de Chile. En 2012 sufre una lesión autoinmune que la inspira para años más tarde escribir “Cuerpo Descentrado”, su cortometraje de título, financiando su postproducción con un fondo nacional. En 2017 viaja becada a Cuba a estudiar Guión en la EICTV. Desde su incidente clínico, su trabajo es una incansable exploración sobre el cuerpo. Limítrofe entre la interdisciplina, el arte medial y la cinematografía, vislumbra la psicología humana, recreando sensaciones corporales a través de la experimentación.
