Christopher Oroza Nostas is an award winning, non-binary, queer, Indigenous LatinX filmmaker, writer, and activist. As the son of Bolivian immigrants and from two indigenous linages: Quechua in the Amazon, and Aymara in the Andes, his work is forged by his multi-cultural heritage and motivated by the primal forces that shape modern society. Christopher began his entrée into the film industry in Los Angeles as a commercial producer, head of production, and most notably as a stylist and costume designer for studio and independent films such as: Miles, The House, Nocturne, and the additional photography for Men In Black International and the LA unit for Terminator: Dark Fate. Seeing a desperate need for Latin American representation, Christopher transitioned to writing and directing as his sole focus in 2020 with a mission to develop and produce authentic cinema, empower under-represented storytellers, and push LatinX stories to the forefront of the cultural conversation. His most recent film Savior won the Bruce Corwin Award for Best Live Action Short at the 2021 Santa Barbara International Film Festival making it Oscar Qualified for 2022. As a civil rights advocate, Christopher has worked with survivors of institutionalized abuse, LGBTQ+ youth, child laborers, and indigenous communities to help share their stories with a global audience. Through his efforts he has raised thousands of dollars for LGBTQ+ youth impacted by the pandemic and is developing a digital platform for indigenous communities to share their stories.
