"Katu" is a bone-chilling short film that delves into the horrors of an otherworldly relationship, exploring the terrifying consequences of inviting malevolent spirits into one's life. Through a heart-pounding journey of terror and desperation, it serves as a haunting reminder that some encounters are better left unexplored, lest they consume us in an irreversible descent into darkness.

Director Biography - Tatiana Puerto

Bachelor of Visual Arts and fashion designer by training. The study in these areas has led me to discover the world of art direction and find in it a possibility to relate my knowledge to generate atmospheres and work on investigative concepts in commercial areas in a critical and collective way.
During the last years I have participated in artistic residencies in Mexico and collective exhibitions in Colombia, Mexico and El Salvador. The residences have allowed me to explore and inquire about social problems in each context and thus build a broader vision of my own reality.

Director Statement

My production is based on explorations of the social, pedagogy in the field of the expanded and the society-consumption relationship. I am interested in collective work and visual studies with the possibilities that this field offers to develop inter-epistemic and creative dialogues. I have developed my practice in different techniques since I find it enriching to navigate from traditional media (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc) to the use of technological media (audiovisual, sound experimentation, performance, etc).
