María Teresa Rodríguez

Mariateresarodriguez
(1) by Ruth Naomi Floyd

María is a documentary filmmaker, producer and teaching artist whose work often centers on untold stories of Latinos in the US and abroad. Many of her films, such as Mirror Dance (with Frances McElroy), focus on personal stories that reflect a larger socio-political reality. Currently she is working on ¿Donde Están? with producer Kaye Pyle, a documentary which explores Salvadoran society 15 years after the peace accords, through the stories of the disappeared children of the civil war and the families that search for them. María has facilitated videos with seniors, high school youth and Mexican migrant workers through Scribe Video Center, and currently teaches at University of the Arts. The daughter of a Colombian father and an Irish mother, she is drawn to stories of migration, struggle and change.
