Guillermo Ruiz

Cinematographer, documentary filmmaker, and photographer, son of groundbreaking Bolivian filmmaker Jorge Ruiz. He has created dozens of documentaries, television projects, and reportages, and has participated in many cinematographic workshops. His 2009 film Sebastiana and the Chipaya Culture was a follow-up to his father’s most important and most cited work, Come Back, Sebastiana (1953). In this film, Guillermo Ruiz returns to the Chipaya nation and the protagonist of his father’s best-known film Sebastiana Kespi, who describes how the life of Bolivia’s Indians has changed over the past fifty years.
