Refocus: Indigenous Cinema Made By Audiovisual Collectives

aluCine Latin Film & Media Arts Festival says
Drawing from eclectic filmic styles including stop-motion animation, pseudo-public service announcements and testimonials, sometimes within a single film, this program features and celebrates the contemporary output of indigenous cinema. Collectively, the films presented grapple with the overarching question: how are indigenous communities appropriating a western medium such as cinema to express their lifeways? In many of the films young and old partake in creating a visual representation that reflect a vast cultural history, narrative traditions, and understanding of the known world. These films, mostly created by collectives, alter the age-old paradigm of the auteur as a lone genius.

Films in the program:

* El Sueño de Sonia - Dr. Diego Sarmiento
* Lafken Ñi Az - Dr. Colectivo Mapuche
* Xhun - Dr. Colectivo Tz’ikin
* Ushui -Dr. Colectivo Bunkuaneiuman
* Uma Wawa - Dr. CEFREC / CAIB & Taller Ambulante de Formación Audiovisual TAFA
* Huichol. El Primer Amanecer / Pai Pai. El Origen de los Celos / Yaqui. El Chapulín Brujo - Dr. COMBO (68 Voces)
