About the Filmmaker
Julia Pá holds a Masters in Development Studies from University of Sussex (UK) and worked for 6 years with social policy in the Government of Brazil, World Bank and DFID, implementing social programs in villages in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
After visiting rural communities throughout the world, Julia decided to dive into the lives of women from different countries and share their daily lives. She then created the independent immersion project, 13 Moons: a journey in search for the power of the feminine in various cultures. She would live inside the households of women, work in the fields, cook, eat, dance, laugh and share silences with them, and translate those experiences into photography and film.
The project has two chapters in Colombia and in India, and her short films have been screened in festivals in Brazil and India.
