Roger Montecinos Perez

Roger Montecinos Perez (2017) is a La Paz-based social investigative journalist and creator-director of the Bolivian television documentary series “7 Pecados” (7 Sins), a named derived from Roger’s deep interest in “changing society and the corrupt ways of natural man.” His films focus on social ills and are intended to catalyze positive change by individuals, organizations, and government. His award-winning work, investigating subjects as diverse as childhood cancer treatment, abortion, and prostitution, has been recognized in Bolivia and internationally.

As a Logan Nonfiction Program fellow, Roger will be working on his film “Incluyeme,” translated “Include Me.” It explores the lives of Bolivians with intellectual disabilities, their struggles, and their unique and inspiring perspectives on life.
