Project Details

Description

This project consists of writing a feature film script inspired on ancient Mixtec screenfolds. The project explores how to tell a precolonial Indigenous story through film, while much of the historical information is missing. The project examines decolonial approaches to storytelling and the central question is: How can the film script incorporate the uncertainty and lack of information, while at the same time creating a connection between the precolonial Indigenous culture and the present day Mixtec People? The project was selected to participate in the ImagineNative Indigenous Screenwriting Intensive.
