Patricia Diaz

Colombian filmmaker Patricia Diaz began her career in film training to become an actress. She studied drama and semiotics with Umberto Eco at the University of Bologna before traveling to London in 1983. After earning an MA in directing at the Northern School of Film and Television in Leeds, she wrote, directed, and produced short films and documentaries for British television, including MY FILMMAKING, MY LIFE (which won honorable mention at the 1991 San Antonio CineFestival), SALSA FEVER, and THE HIDDEN WISDOM. Diaz also wrote and directed the short film TWO MARGARITAS, which opened the X International Latin American Film Festival in London, screened for a month at the Metro cinema in Piccadilly, and was shown at other international festivals including the Edinburgh Film Festival and New York Latino Film Festival. She is currently writing THE HEART OF THE WORLD, a feature-length script about a young man who discovers the connections between oil exploitation and violence in Colombia. (07/09)
