Ánimas (Spirits)


Shot entirely on a cellphone, this short film is a self-archeological and self-anthropologic experimental collage through the intimate moments of Coapan. Decoloniality is a tool used as means of celebrating, challenging, and reconstructing. The resilience of traditions and costumbres of this community are highlighted as resistance, self-preservation, and endurance. Después de mas de 500 años de supremacía blanca en Mexico, que queda? After more than five hundred years of Mexican white supremacy, what is left?

Señor de la buena muerte. Lord of good death.
Lo que nunca murió. What never died
Prenda de mi corazón. Token of my heart.
Ritual as resistance.
Ombligos enterrados.
Resistance as resurgence of what was always there.
