Maira Nolasco


I started off at New School in the documentary studies program. I produced, edited, filmed, cried and sweat over a short documentary about a soccer team in Brooklyn. The soccer team is made up of latin american men with a shared history of immigration. After their long days of work they make their way to a local middle school gym, where they play about 5x/ week-for some of them it is their income.

Before New School I was studying anthropology, human rights and art studio at Hunter College. I hope to merge all of these interests into a visual anthropology fusion.

i’m currently working on two projects. One is called “black banana,” with Novel Scholars, exploring the lack of afro representation in central american art. The second is “border/culture,” a web series for the boundaries that exist between cultural identity, both real and imagined. (
