Carolina’s films lie at the intersection of personal, social, and political narratives. She weaves multiple media–animation, video, film, performance, and writing–to create films that challenge social and historical representations of migration, otherness, diaspora, and labor.  She has worked on projects in Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Lebanon, and the United States. Her projects have been funded by BAVC MediaMaker Fellowship, LEF Foundation Production and post production Grant, the Lyn Blumenthal Scholarship (School of the Art Institute of Chicago), the Gelman Travel Fellowship (School of the Art Institute of Chicago), and the Programa Nacional de Estímulos (Colombian Ministry of Culture) among others.  She received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation).  Carolina is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art and Visual Culture at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
