“Filming, Healthy food, a Sustainable world and Getting inspired; That’s all I want!”
My name is Lizeth Yarlequé. I’m a Producer and Documentary Filmmaker from Lima, Peru. However, this was not always my career. I carry a degree in Architecture. I worked in that industry for some years until I found my real passion in life! ‘Documentary Filming!’
My instinct worrying regarding human issues brought me to have a great interest on the development of stories with the constant motivation to show that humans we always can be better. After some time working in a Production company in Northern Ireland, UK during the 2017 and after winning a few international competitions I was ready to start this journey myself.
Nowadays I run a team in Peru that works for a variety of international companies, documentary directors and for my own personal projects. Either filming, producing, researching or being a fixer.

Finalist on my last short documentary in protest against violence in Peru called Stopping the violence in the contest organized by the Embassy of Belgium in Peru in June 2018.
In August 2019 I was interviewed by the National TV channel of Peru to talk about my career and how I jumped into this industry fully from passion.
