Tanya Mordacci (US)
I've always been in love with Art.
As a photographer, journalist, writer and producer, curiosity has led me to explore different means for I believe expression has a multitude of languages.
I was born in Mexico City, spent most of my adult life in Italy and I'm an Australian citizen currently living in Los Angeles.
Studied a BA in Photography at Parsons School of Design, NYC.
Form N.Y. I was offered a job in Milan, Italy, to work as a fashion and music photographer under Warner Music Italia and Donna Io magazine.
A few years later, I moved back to Mexico City to work as the Art Column Director and Head Writer for Newsweek Magazine, Latin America, having the opportunity to interview many of my most admired artists and museum curators, such as photographer Spencer Tunick, iconic designer Eero Arnio and the Frida Kahlo retrospective at Museo de Bellas Artes de México, among others.
For over six years I worked as monthly columnist for Glamour Magazine, with the column “Tanya says” a “Sex and the City" of sorts, under French editorial, Conde Nast, Latin America.
I moved to L.A to pursue the writing of my first novel under UCLA Writer’s Program –still in progress. My first book, a bi-national compilation of Latino female writers Antología Bi-Nacional –Identitario de Mujeres Latinas, curated by the award-winning Mexican poet, Elena de Hoyos, was published in April 2019.
I've always been fascinated by theater, weaving it the most I can into my work –life. In Florence, Italy, I was the producer and writer for “Sogni Piccini” a children theater festival at Teatro di Rifredi. In Mexico City I produced the short plays “Así Somos” and “Hotel K”.
In 2017, Los Angeles, I launched, as Festival Director, the first edition of Short and Sweet Hollywood Latino. Short and Sweet is the biggest, short-play festival in the world, running in 14 countries and 40 cities. After a very successful first edition, this year my company Superhero Latina Entertainment will hold the license for the Latino festival, which I have chosen to manage as Executive Producer.
As Founder of Superhero Latina Entertainment, my main interest is to create beauty through fun, crazy and exciting art events, giving audiences "newness" in their experiences.
Our first short film THERAPY is a triple award winning short film and in 2020, the Art House film CITY CHILD from Director Austin Lynch, was completed in Berlin and is currently in post-production.
Also, in 2020, Superhero Latina Entertainment executive produced and co-produced the short film contest FILM THE FUTURE. An initiative by the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles.
A second book FUERZA LATINA, a compilation of Latino writers will be published in 2021 and presented at the U.S Senate.
Through Superhero Latina, I am a Board Member of the Mexican Chamber of Commerce -California Regional Chapter. Member of NALIP -National Association of Latino Independent Producers. And Visionary Women member -a Beverly Hills based non-profit that aims to empower women from across the world, lead by 2x Beverly Hills Mayor and Council Member, Honorable Lilli Bosse.
I’m fluent in Spanish, English, Italian and enough French to hit on a hot man.
