Boca de Culebra / Snake’s Mouth, Dir. Adriana Otero
(You met her in Filméxico 2021 with her multi awarded film “What Happened to the Bees?”)
Chicán (chi´kaan), Mayan word that means ‘snake's mouth’, is a small Mayan community in the south of Yucatan where for generations its inhabitants have been born with a particular characteristic and share the same surnames. This documentary portrays the life of a family from that place and their resilience in a village where tradition will continue unless someone breaks the cycle.
Negra / Black Woman, Dir. Medhin Tewolde
(You met her in Salt Lake Film Society’s Sundance 2021 Panels)
“Negra” shows the director in her search of exploring what it means to inhabit Mexico as a black woman. It tells the story of five afro-descendant women from southern Mexico, exposing racism, resistance and processes of self-acceptance, strategies for transcending stereotypes, and the celebration of their identity.
La Felicidad en la que vivo / The happiness in which I live, Dir. Carlos Morales
(You met him in Sundance Film Festival 2017 and at the ‘Symphonie of a Sad Sea’ community conversation co-presented by The Consulate of Mexico and Salt Lake Film Society)
Building an asylum for the LGBT + community is the dream of Samantha, an 88-year-old trans woman. The happiness in which she lives is an emotional story that evokes reflection on inclusion. Samantha tells what her life has been like, love, family, old age but above all the importance of continuing to have dreams as incentives to continue on the final stage of life.
