Director Biography - Isabella Morelli Avilán

I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. I was constantly surrounded by a conservative environment, which led me to develop my creativity. I always knew that, even though society in my country made it seem like it, things were not only black or white. As a writer, this is my main driving force and inspiration. When I write, I think of how my work will help break barriers and defy stereotypes. Film is one of the most powerful ways through which one can open people's minds and make them realize there is life beyond the traditional and familiar. I strive to convey this in my work and perfect it through every project I take part in.

Director Statement

In my work I like to explore pain as a human emotion, and the way it transforms people and defines their actions. Pain as a theme allows for stories to be character-driven, as well as ground a story before I begin to even write it. It manifests itself in an array of ways that shape characters and differentiate them from one another. My objectives are focused on learning how to best write and visually convey pain and similar themes within the stories I want to tell.
