About

After eight years working as a reporter in Colombia, his homeland, César moved to California, where he got a master's degree at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, his emphasis there was documentary filmmaking. César has focused his work on environmental issues, migration, Indigenous communities' rights, and the challenges for the peace process in Colombia, among other topics. He's currently a Video Fellow at the BBC North America in Washington, D.C. Part of his work has been published by the French public network France 24 and Los Angeles Times. His most recent short documentary, 'Plantas de Poder,' was co-directed with his colleague and friend Chris Ehrmann and is set to premiere at the Santa Fe International Film Festival in the Fall of 2023.
