REFUGIO/REFUGE (25 MINUTES)

Spanish with no subtitles

Directors: Mayra P. Caal Gaspar and Eloi Chávez

Refugio (Refuge)  is a short film that tells the stories of Amalia and Roberto, two Guatemalan refugees who fled on foot to the Mexican state of Campeche on the Yucatan peninsula. Like many other Guatemalan refugees (36,000 of them) Amalia and Roberto fled Guatemala's three decade long civil war where atrocities and civilian massacres were perpetrated by both the army and the guerrilla fighters. Narrated in the first person, the co-director of this documentary introduces us into the universe of these refugees who, despite their trauma, have reconstructed their lives, identities, and created a new community in Mexico.

Refugio (Refuge), es un cortometraje que cuenta la historia de Amalia y Roberto, dos refugiados Guatemaltecos que salieron de la península de Yucatán y llegaron caminando al estado de Campeche, México. Tal y como lo hacen muchos refugiados Guatemaltecos, Amalia y Roberto huían de tres décadas de guerra civil en su país en donde fueron testigos de atrocidades y masacres en contra de la población, perpetradas por las fuerzas armadas y la guerrilla. En el filme, narrado en primera persona, el codirector de este documental  lleva a la audiencia a un universo desconocido donde estos refugiados, a pesar de su trauma, logran reconstruir sus vidas, cambian sus identidades y crean una nueva comunidad en México.

LA SELVA NEGRA/THE MODERN JUNGLE (72 MINUTES)

Spanish w/ English subtitles

Directors: Saúl Kak and Charles Fairbanks

La selva negra (The Modern Jungle) is a portrait of globalization filtered through the fever dream of a Mexican shaman, Don Juan, who falls under the spell of a pyramid-scheme-marketed nutritional supplement. Juan's neighbor Carmen lives simply, in harmony with the land her martyred husband paid for with his life. This film documents their struggles and encounters with outside forces: from capitalism and commodity fetish, to the culture of cinema, and the directors of this film.

La selva negra (The Modern Jungle) es un auto-retrato de la globalización filtrada por la fiebre y la ilusión de un chamán mexicano, Don Juan, quien cae bajo el hechizo y la obsesión de un negocio multinivel de un suplemento nutricional. La vecina de Juan, Carmen, simplemente vive en armonía con la tierra que su esposo mártir pago con su vida. Este filme documenta sus luchas y los encuentros con fuerzas exteriores. Desde capitalismo hasta la comodidad, y la cultura del cine y el director de este filme
