PAPILIO is a multimedia production company that explores new narratives by mixing video, audio, photography, text and web development to tell stories from a human perspective. We produce projects based on journalistic investigations that focus on social issues to give a complete insight into society’s matters.
We believe in new narratives and visual storytelling as a powerful resource for social change. We create quality information to visualise, amplify and highlight unknown contexts. To do so, we use a powerful tool, empathy, to listen carefully to those who have experiences to recount and transform their narratives into an understandable message for all audiences.
We are a multidisciplinary team specialised in anthropology and human rights with a vast international experience in the audiovisual sector and nonprofit organisations.
