Based on his trilogy on memory, filmmaker Andrés Duque discusses some of the problems of his country of origin, Venezuela, “where corruption and capitalism perpetuate themselves under the cover of socialist ideals”. In his films, there are bodies dancing and the hope for utopia.

His films were shown and awarded at major international film festivals such as Cinéma du Réel, Punto de Vista and Buenos Aires. In 2012, he was invited to the Flaherty Film Seminar.
