SYNOPSIS: 

Renowned Venezuelan plastic artist Mariana Monteagudo shares her creative process and the inspirations behind her intriguing, eerie and culturally hybrid doll sculptures, all made of repurposed materials that were originally waste. We follow Mariana into the creation of her new series, “Uncanny,” and along the way gain insight into capitalism, immigration, maternity, contemporary art, terror and the repurposing of objects.
