Vero Kompalic is a Venezuelan filmmaker and painter currently based in Los Angeles. Raised between Southern Africa and South America, and with a degree from Chapman University in Film Studies and Post-Colonial and Revolutionary Studies, she focuses most of her scholarship work on postcolonial feminist discourse, with publications on the sexual transgression of Catherine Breillat’s work and the radical implications of the cinema of Mariana Rondon.
Vero worked as a film programmer for Film Independent, later transitioning into production and writing. In 2019 she worked as an AP and writer on SUMMERTIME, Carlos Lopez Estrada’s follow up to BLINDSPOTTING, which premiered at SUNDANCE 2020 and was theatrically released nationwide by GOOD DEED in 2021. In 2020 she founded DISCORDIA, an independent female-founded production company, alongside her longtime collaborators.
