Filmmaker, media, and communications in United States
Pita Juarez is a filmmaker, journalist, and political communications strategist. Pita is a queer immigrant woman from Guatemala who works to uplift the story of marginalized people through effective and compelling storytelling.
Pita received critical acclaim as the director and producer of the award-winning documentary “You Racist, Sexist Bigot”. The documentary tackles the complex identity issues of race, sexuality, and feminism in a patriarchal world from the perspective of marginalized people who harness their power by telling their stories and upending stereotypes.
Pita uses dynamic storytelling to uplift voices that often aren’t captured in mainstream media. She has challenged traditional and political communications to include the untold stories of youth, people of color, and other communities whose voices aren’t heard.
Her work ranges from political advocacy to investigative journalism that has been featured in the National Geographic, CNN Latino, Remezcla, NPR, and Univision. Pita’s artistry and insight have successfully built bridges with the people on the frontlines to capture authentic conversations and shift the culture of storytelling.
