Augusto Pedraza is a theater and filmmaker, performer and historian living in Mechelen. In 2020, he graduated from RITCS as a director. His first short film Violence premiered in 2021 and was selected for several festivals. Through dance, theater, film, visual art and music, he speaks about themes of origin, identity, love, pessimism, violence and hope.
The adventure and desire to broaden his imagination and ideas led him to seek out places other than Mexico City, his hometown. He embarked on a journey that took him along different paths all the way to Brussels, where language, climate, relationships, nostalgia and encounters with others led to a constant redefinition of his identity.
“I am under constant redefinition, I am part of a diaspora, I am part of a minority, I am a collector and treasurer of stories and I am a person with a pluricultural history. A history that motivates me to speak about those chapters of my life.” – Augusto Pedraza –
