Design Role: Investigating: Ojo al Sancocho

The DESIS Alliance “Civic Award For a Better Bogotá”, a project that supports community initiatives, allowed for a trial exercise to be run for this year’s visiting film festival contestants.  The one-week long trial made it possible to collect information about upcoming projects that might share similar characteristics, compile photographic registries, conduct interviews, open access to facilities, contact community members, work through material obtained, and carry out a comparative analysis on the strengths and weaknesses of the festival.
