UConn Stamford Professor, Human Rights Filmmaker Oscar Guerra Earns Two Emmy Nominations

Oscar Guerra is an assistant professor of film and video in the Digital and Design Department at the Department at UConn Stamford. During the extremely hard time we all faced last year because of COVID-19, Guerra captured real insight of a immigrant family from Guatemala and how COVID-19 affected their family. The documentary was named “Love, Life, and the Virus” and it was the story of Zully (the mother) and her two sons who were all diagnosed positive with COVID-19. Zully was pregnant at the time and after giving birth the family had to be separated because of the virus. A story like this is not what many of us would have thought happened to some women during the pandemic. To read more and watch the documentary of Guerra’s work click here.
