“Filming, Healthy food, a Sustainable world and Getting inspired; That’s all I want!”
My name is Lizeth Yarlequé and I’m a Producer and Documentary Filmmaker from Lima, Peru.
This was not always my career as it took me some years of learning about myself to realize that my degree in Architecture wouldn’t take me where I wanted to go. Therefore, after some years of confusions I did the jump and here I am.
The journey was not easy at all, specially having only $100 on my bank account, not experience and with a 32 years old. But my full motivation on how bad I wanted to tell the world about human stories, culture and places were the push to follow my dreams.
Therefore, after some internship in a Production company in Northern Ireland, UK during the 2017 and after winning a few international competitions I was ready to start this career myself.
Nowadays I work for the biggest international TV broadcasters, documentary directors and for my own personal projects either filming, producing, researching or being a fixer in Peru.
