Andrés is a Colombian-Mexican-American documentary filmmaker and fisherman. His methodology of documentation is long, ambulatory fieldwork, living with subjects at length in deep immersion, sometimes even working alongside them. His work takes him from one watershed to the next. In 2016 he trekked the length of the Doce River in Brazil, the site of the largest mine tailings spill in history. He recently helped complete an award winning, web based interactive documentary titled The River Runs Red. He is currently planning fieldwork for a documentary in Bristol Bay, Alaska where he also works as a fly fishing guide.
