Clara Stephanie Schieber Lorenesi


I’m a Guatemalan filmmaker, storyteller and photographer. After getting a BA in Business Administration and a Diploma in photography, I managed to get work as a fashion and commercial photographer. One of my projects was a photo reportage centered on the stories from three women that work as housemaids in Guatemala City, titled Mujeres Invisibles (Invisible Women). This turned out to be the seed for my graduation film from The London Film School, called Espacios Vacíos (Empty Spaces).
