Andrea Franco (b. Lima, Peru) is an artist, filmmaker, and film curator based in Los Angeles. Her work, rooted in documentary and experimental film traditions, explores the psychogeography of place, memory, diasporic and indigenous communities, and post-colonial social and political dynamics throughout Latin America and beyond. Her work is often informed by personal journeys and her own biography. Franco works with the moving image as an impactful and healing mechanism towards a shift in consciousness and our perception of the world and of others.
In 2019, she had her first solo show with Vigil Gonzales gallery in Lima, Peru. Franco’s work has screened at Pacific Standard Time LA/LA, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Cineteca Nacional de Mexico, Museo Metropolitano de Lima, Flaherty NYC, Museo de Arte de Lima, BAFICI, Matadero Madrid, REDCAT, Zinebi Bilbao, Lima Film Festival, Santiago International Film Festival, Sala Luis Miro Quesada Garlandamong others. She received a MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
She is also currently restoring her late grandfather Bernardo Batievsky's films Cholo (1972) and Espejismo (1973) at the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
