“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. This was not always my career, as I have a degree in Architecture. I worked as an architect for various years until I found my real passion in life! ‘Filming Documentaries!’
My instinct worrying regarding human issues brought me to have a great interest in 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.
