Beatriz Azurduy Palacios (Beatriz Azurduy Palacios)

Beatriz Azurduy Palacios

Motion Picture Director. She is bound very indissolubly to the filmography of Jorge Sanjinés, with whom she was united for more than 28 years. Among the works she contributed to, either as producer, editor or screenwriter, were “¡Fuera de aquí!”, “Banderas del amanecer”, “La nación clandestina” y “Para recibir el canto de los pájaros”. She was a member of the board of directors of the “Fundación del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano”. She represented Bolivia at the International School of Cinema and Television of San Antonio de los Baños and was also a member of the Film directors of Latin America Committe. In 1999, during the XXIst International Festival of the New Latin American Cinema, held in Havana, she received the recognition of the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba for her significant contribution. She maintained, to the margin of her cinematographic activities, a constant “shared in common” attitude with the Cuban revolution and passed away in that country, where she had traveled to receive medical attention.
