Filming the Anthropocene

( ( ( ( ( /* ) ) ) ) )

by Charles Fairbanks and Saul Kak, 2019 (in Mexico)

Mexico | 18 minutes15 | Spanish with English and French subtitles

A sensory short film that portrays, with an experimental treatment, the daily life of the Mexican indigenous community Zoque, which is marked by the ghost of a volcanic eruption that occurred in 1982. An immersion filmed over a period of six years, punctuated by powerful and relevant images.

FIFEQ’s review

This short film is a little gem that boldly mixes the genre of the ethnographic film and that of the cinematographic essay to address the topics of communication and human relationships.
