Fischer’s directorial debut, the documentary Ati y Mindhiwa, was screened at numerous international festivals, including the Festival FILMAR en América Latina; the Viewster Online Film Festival; the KO&digital Solidarity Film Festival; the 2014 London Film Awards; the Cine Las Americas festival in Austin, Texas; the Dournenez Film Festival in France; the 17th Bogota International Documentary Screening (MIDBO); the National Indigenous Film Screening (DAUPARA); and the Milan International Film Festival.

Commenting on the film, the director said, “This documentary is above all restorative. Through the two sisters’ journey, the audience will come to understand the tenacity needed to travel within ourselves, and for the sisters to grow their branches without forgetting their roots. This is how we achieve mutual understanding.” Fischer added, “This is the essence of South American women, which we can find throughout our own mothers’ generation.”
