Carlos Ormeño Palma - Director - Peruvian independent films


Peruvian filmmaker and alumnus of La Fémis Université d'été, Berlinale Talents, Oberhausen Seminar with Ruth Noack and Talents Buenos Aires. His passion as a filmmaker arose from the memories of his
family, his identity as a member of the LGBTIQ+ community, and social justice.

Since making films, Carlos has developed an interest in recreating different worlds within absence and faith. He’s currently developing his first hybrid feature film entitled The Scent of Walls, developed with the support of Cine Qua Non Lab in Mexico.

His recent fiction short film The distance of Time has been selected at the 68° Oberhausen ISFF, 

29° Raindance, 40° Uruguay IFF, 21° DokuFest, and 19° OUTFEST Perú, among others. His second fiction short, The Weight of Air, won the Peruvian National Fund for Short Films and is currently in pre-production. In 2021 he directed La langue inconnue du Soleil couchant in France.

In 2019, he published “The borders of transsexuality in Latin American cinema”, an article about the representation of trans women in six Latin-American films, and in 2017, he worked as 1AD in the film "Song without a Name" by Melina León (51° Quinzaine des Réalisateurs).
