Filmmaker Nicolás Rojas will share some aspects of his creative process, working with and for Indigenous communities in the Mixtec region of Oaxaca, Mexico. He will focus on his experience in the construction of an Indigenous audiovisual self-representation space. His talk will revolve around the motivations, conflicts and frictions surrounding the production of two short fiction films: Snuu Viko - The Place of the Clouds and Some Lost Words (2008) and the award-winning Music for the Ultimate Dream (2013).
Both shorts will be shown in Mixtec with Spanish and English subtitles.
