An LA based filmmaker and activist, Dante Alencastre was born in Peru, but soon moved to the United States; he earned a BA from Columbia University and began his career as a director in 1983. Since then, Dante has made several films dedicated to the social climates (political, personal, and both) that LGBTQ+ folks face. He directed TransVisible: Bamby Salcedo Story in 2013, and continues to work with and for LGBTQ+ communities; Dante is currently invested in the queer and trans climates in Peru, which can be further seen in his film, The Fire Inside (2011).
