Juana Wein is a director, writer, actress and photographer raised in Buenos Aires and based in Paris.
She is interested in exploring and creating visual worlds that are poetic, imaginary and that propose new ways of storytelling.
With a background in theater and literature she mixes drama and poetry to arrive to a holistic piece.
From the intimate to the oddity, Juana is capable of putting together sensitivity, innocence and bizarreness into an individual aesthetic.
She carries a particular interest in things that are genuine, often portraying childhood and exploring magical universes that open doors to fear and fantasies.
She chooses to work with supports such as super 16mm film, super 8mm and video tape.
Juana inquires into the relation between instantaneous mental images with the ones that print directly on film.
