EFF Filmmaker Resources: Andrea Bussmann

Andrea Bussman is a filmmaker and social anthropologist based in Toronto. Her third film, Fausto, screened at the 2019 Essay Film Festival. Shot on 16mm on Mexico’s Oaxacan coast, it combines an ethnographical exploration of a pre-colonial folkloric world and loosely-adapted anti-empiricist elements from Goethe’s Faust. Her previous short films, 2016’s Tales of Two Who Dreamt and 2011’s Aquel cuyo rostro no irradie luz, similarly blended elements of documentary and fiction.
