Teacher / Maestro: CHRISTIAN FIGUEROA
Independent filmmaker, Christian Figueroa, is a native of El Salvador, where he grew up as a teenager witnessing his country’s Civil War. Images of this conflict and personal quest for answers to the madness of war inspired him to confront social issues through art and cinema. He’s produced documentary films in the US, Cuba, China, Italy, and El Salvador. His films problematize and deal with notions of cultural identity, urban issues, war trauma, and art.
Presently, Christian Figueroa is in development on his feature film, “Flowers of May,” which narrates through personal testimonies the summary executions of more than 600 civilians during the events of the Sumpul River massacre at the beginning of the Salvadorian Civil War.
Christian has an MFA – Cinema Production from San Francisco State University, teaches documentary workshops at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, and also film production at MYT.
