Other Futures

Juanita Onzaga

​Juanita Onzaga is a Colombian-Belgian filmmaker and cinematographer based in Brussels. Her interest in movement and dance led her to direct hybrid productions between dance, fiction and non-fiction films. In her work, screened at Berlinale and Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in Cannes, she explores the crossroads between mysticism, poetry, dealing with trauma, ancestral knowledge, perception, technology and futurism. Other Futures will screen her first short film, The Jungle Knows You Better Than You Do (2017), which follows two siblings roaming the mystical landscapes of Colombia in search of their dead father's spirit.
