Director Biography - Tahiel Jimenez Medina

Tahiel Jimenez Medina (he, him his; they, them, theirs) is a Colombian first-generation immigrant director. In dedication to migrant mamas who flee generational violence, he presents Colombian immigrant identity through a lens that celebrates ever-evolving emotional and ancestral journeys, memories, and dreams. His visions about immigrant and Colombian identity are culture catalysts to decolonize, remember and heal ancestral cycles. Medina premiered films at national and international film festivals including Palms Springs International Short Film Festival, New York Latino Film Festival, and Provincetown International Film Festival—and in local parking lots for his community to gather and dream of new worlds. His documentary Día a Día, 2020: One Day at a Time is available on PBS online channels (, PBS Video App).
