Cristina Ibarra is a New York based filmmaker with roots along the US/Mexico border. Latino Public Broadcasting, Paul Robeson Fund, and New York State Council for the Arts have all funded her work. She is a Rockefeller Fellow, a CPB/PBS Producer’s Academy Fellow and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow. Her new script, Love & Monster Trucks, was selected for a staged reading by the Latino Producers’ Academy and UCLA’s Professional Screenwriting Program. It is about two high school fiends cruising the intricate social landscape that shapes the U.S.-Mexico border in a narrative blending comics, drama and fantasy.
She is a founding member of "Fulana", an award-winning interdisciplinary Latina collaborative, where she directed two satirical shorts Latino Plastic Cover and Lupe & JuanDi From the Block. Her award-winning directorial debut, Dirty Laundry: A Homemade Telenovela is currently airing on ColorVision, a new national PBS series. Her shorter pieces have shown in galleries, museums and film festivals across the United States. She is producing an hour-long documentary, The Last Conquistador, for the Public Broadcasting System about a world-famous sculptor constructing the world’s largest bronze equestrian to a Spanish colonizer despite Native American and Chicano demands to stop the monument’s construction.
