Filmmaker Dolissa Medina at age 17 (1988)

I have been making films since 2000. My work has screened in festivals and galleries in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Berlin, Rotterdam, Mexico City, Beirut and other cities. I am interested in the mythic dimensions of history and often explore this theme in my found footage films that examine place and the urban experience. “Small Town, Turn Away” is my most personal film to date.
