This video is my first "TED" speech and I describe my experience as international student so far, giving as example all the films I've made during my residency abroad. I really want to encourage and inspire all the students to travel and let the art create them while they shape it. I also talk about my last project called "4 GeneRelations Women", the reason I want to travel to my next destination. This is a film about the lives of 4 generation of women, all belonging to the same family. Researching the women gene- relations in 2 countries already (Spain, Turkey), increased me the curiosity of expanding and investigate how 4 generations of women live in different parts of the world, in cultures which are very different.. In Costa Rica there is a tribe called Bribri, which is a female-led society. I think it's crucial for the development of my project to portray a matriarchal society just to give a multilateral view of the lives of 4 generation of women around the world.
