Silvina Sterin Pensel

Radio France Internationale RFi

I am a multiplatform multimedia reporter, a film producer and Director.
New York is my muse, my inspiration where I find characters like Pura Belpre, the first Latina librarian hired by the NYPL and main character of my short “Following Pura’s steps” and I think there is no more powerful means to communicate than film. I am originally from Buenos Aires and now I am a true New Yorker. You will find me running around the streets always carrying my camera on one hand and my tripod in the other (Metrocard in my back pocket :)
