About the event
COMMUNITY ARCHIVES TALK: IMAGES OF AFRO DESCENDANTS OF ARICA
We will present part of the audiovisual archive protected by the Afro-descendant community of Arica, investigating the process of finding and preserving the material, its functions and the scope that community participation can have in its enhancement.
FILM I AM BLACK: THE LIFE OF JORGE ARTEL
Synopsis:A journey through the life of the Afro-Colombian poet Jorge Artel, one of the main voices of "black poetry" in Latin America. Writer, journalist, militant, exile and political activist who fought word by word against injustice and racism.
FILM HERE NO ONE HAS DIED
Synopsis:In Telembí - Ecuador, the Day of the Dead is a rite in which the souls of the ancestors are guided by "animeros", who are spiritual guardians chosen by the community. Every November, families keep watch over an empty coffin that symbolizes the souls of the deceased. Songs and prayers accompany the deceased, wherever they are.
TASTE MORENO CONCERT
Sabor Moreno was born in 2003, the group's objective is rescuing the cultural traditions of Afro-descendant communities in the province of Arica. Their presentations invite the public to learn about music, dance and tradition, taking them on a journey full of stories and parties.
Sabor Moreno has made various artistic presentations in Santiago, Valparaíso, Arica, Iquique, among other cities.
Address:Medhin Tewolde Serrano
Synopsis:I was about seven years old the first time someone called me "black" on the street. I turned to see who they were addressing, until I realized it was me. That day I realized that I was black, and the laughter it provoked among the people nearby made me think that being black was not so good... Was it only happening to me? Or did it happen to other black women? "Negra" shows the director in her quest to explore 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 self-acceptance processes, strategies to transcend stereotypes, and the celebration of their identity.
