Ume Tora is a multimedia artist from Chile who is involved in the world of performance and cinema. Currently, Ume works as a photographer and filmmaker, in both fiction and documentary films. Her work includes portraits and documentary street photography of artists and activists.

Ume is a trans nonbinary woman and all of her authorial work/art is imbued with trans activism, as her artistic sensibilities are tied to her perception of gender fluidity. These days, Ume is working on finishing her first film as a director, Relatos Trans-Mutables, a documentary with video essays depicting the trans activist movement in Chile over the last four years, accompanied by the trans experiences of different individuals, including her own, as she delves into the scars and affections of her people.
