Fragments – Nich L. Perez – USA

“Amid the media overload, who are you?” Filmed in twelve countries in ten years, “Fragments” is a visual essay on the idea of self captured through the lens through the memories embedded in the film grains and pixels. But questions remain.

Director Biography – NICH L. PEREZ

Nich L. Perez is a documentary filmmaker, researcher, and educator currently based in Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.

He treats every film grain or pixel as sacred, allowing moments as fragments of memories to transcend through the lens as a whole, meaningful and worthwhile.

In 2014 he participated in the Human Rights and Photography Program at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in partnership with the Magnum Foundation. Before doing his research fellowship in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, he was an Assistant Professor in Communications and Visual Arts at Holy Cross College at Notre Dame, Indiana. With 15 years of experience in the fields of education and filmmaking, Nich’s work, mostly in the realm of creating media for social change and documentary, have been selected in various film festivals, including (In)Justice For All, Great Lakes, Flicker’s Rhode Island, NXMW, and One Nation Film Festivals.
He continues to share this passion of educating hearts and forming minds with his students and collaborators, inside and outside the classroom, and in the projects that they create, one pixel at a time.

Director Statement

Ten years of memories merged in a 6-minute visual essay can never truly define our true selves. Despite the years of acquiring terabytes of information through our lenses, I always ask these questions:

“Are these memories mere synthetic truth?”
“Will they last?”
“And who are we in this digital overload of information?”

Some inspiring truths to dwell on “Fragments.”
