Founded in 2008 by husband-and-wife team Eduardo Montes-Bradley (writer and director) and Soledad Liendo (producer), the Heritage Film Project specializes in documenting the lives and works of the creative class—artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, scientists, and scholars. Our subjects typically work against the grain, a grain that is artistic, intellectual, and political, and in their unconventionality Eduardo and Soledad find a special stimulus to their own creativity.
Soledad is a graduate of the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), with a master’s degree in filmmaking; a self-taught cinematographer and photographer, Eduardo also has enjoyed a distinguished career as a journalist and lecturer writing and speaking about contemporary politics and cultural issues. His biographical essays on Latin American writers have been published in several languages by Random House and Sperling & Kupfer.
These, as well as some fifty
additional Heritage Film Project
films, are accessible to a worldwide audience in public and academic libraries through Kanopy Streaming and Alexander Street Press.
Heritage Film Project current production is Black Fiddlers. The one-hour documentary film will narrate the untold story of African American violinists, from colonial times to the civil war. Written in collaboration with David McCormick and Loren Ludwig, Black Fiddlers will feature Benjamin Hunter, Rhiannon Giddens and Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje.
