APPROACH

Since 1992 media educator and documentary producer Roberto Arévalo has used, cinema verité, direct cinema, ethnographic and story telling approaches in his documentary work. He collaborates with individuals and organizations to create documentaries that promote social, cultural and personal awareness. The main themes of Arévalo's work are youth, public health, immigrant experiences, education and art.

Arévalo's documentary work is non-scripted and it captures people's stories using small cameras, natural lighting and sound. The subjects/collaborators of Arévalo's documentaries are involved in the planning of their stories. This methodology stimulates mutual learning, and moves from basic documentation techniques to a process of tremendous personal growth for subject and producer alike. Arévalo also photographs the people and environments where the videos are created. Arévalo's productions are first screened in the communities where they are produced and later at museums, festivals and universities nationwide.

All Arévalo's productions are first screened in the communities where they are produced and later at museums, festivals and universities nationwide.
