Daniel Enrique García was born in Trujillo, Peru in 1967 and lived in the Andean city of Arequipa and later in the capital, Lima where he attended University. He graduated from the Catholic University with a degree in linguistics and Latin American literature. He worked as a creative advertising writer for television commercials and institutional documentaries. In 1995 he moved to the United States to pursue postgraduate studies. He obtained an M.A. in communications at Wheaton College and later an M.F.A. in filmmaking at Ohio University in Athens. His body of work includes narrative pieces and documentaries. As a narrative filmmaker he is particularly inclined to stories of human interaction with experimental elements aimed to unveil aspects of the characters’ sub-consciousness. As his thesis project in film school, he produced and directed Lurigancho, a documentary about the lives of minority incarcerated men in Peru’s largest prison. In 2006 he directed and produced the documentary Drawings and War about the experiences of children abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army in the north of Uganda. He recently finished The Gift of ALL, a documentary about the nature of philanthropy and community engagement in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he currently teaches media production at Calvin College.
