About us

Banda Ancha Productions is a collective founded in 2010 by Visual Historian Sarah Borealis and Photojournalist Neyda Paredes.

 

We represent a global network of artists moving information creatively to facilitate cultural interactions.

 

Our goal is to share knowledge through and audio-visual projects and events designed to benefit the communities and causes with which we are involved. We work to merge experiences and sensibilities by producing work with aesthetic and educational value.
