BORIQUEÑA // FILMMAKER // JOURNALIST
Vianca Iliana Fuster is a Puerto Rican journalist and documentary filmmaker from Milwaukee's South Side. She is a Milwaukee Public School graduate and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, Advertising and Media Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2018.
Fuster began her career as a Multimedia Producer for the Community Stories team at 88Nine Radio Milwaukee where she produced audio and video content for on-air segments and 88Nine's social media platforms. Fuster directed, produced, shot, and edited two award-winning documentary web series: National & North and At the Threshold. She co-directed her first feature-length documentary Invisible Lines, which premiered at the Milwaukee Film Festival in Fall 2018.
Fuster's passion for documentary storytelling stems from her desire to share the untold, underrepresented voices from her Latina and South Side community. She believes in using the power of documentary filmmaking to create empathy, educate communities, and to spark change. With the lack of access to mentorship and equipment in her community, Fuster also strives to give Latino youth access to filmmaking as a craft and tool to use their voices and share their stories.
