Director Biography - Kiara Xiomara Bazán

I am a third-year Communication undergraduate program student at Lima University (Peru) , who is an active member of the Film Club of this university. I have been very involved in filmmaking since 2018, producing home videos and this kind of content. Therefore, I made my first short film "Chained to the Screen", despite the pandemic, at the end of 2020. Recently, my first short film has been part of the official PUMPUMYACHKAN selection of the Asimtria 16 Film Festival. I consider myself a self-taught, passionate, and creative person. Due to my personality and achievements, I have received a scholarship in the "Film and TV Industry Essentials" program at New York University.
