Upside Down Home
Itzel Martinez del Canizo, 2014
Synopsis of the film:
Gerardo, Omar and Santos are teenagers living in a low-income housingin Tijuana. In addition to the great friendship, they share a deep emptiness in their homes; their mothers work all day at the factories. In their own personal ways, they cope with monotony, loneliness and the desire to thrive in a hostile place, which inevitably makes us question the results of development and progress in the contemporary large cities.
This is a story of realities and juvenile illusions in a context of difficulties and shortage, where dreams meet unexpected endings.

Navajos make their own films
In the summer of 1966, seven Navajo community members from Pine Springs, Arizona, were the subjects of one of the most provocative experiments in cognitive and visual anthropology yet completed, the Navajo Film Project,resulting in Sol Worth and John Adair’s seminal work
Through Navajo Eyes, as well as seven short ﬁlms produced by Navajo ﬁlmmakers that garnered worldwide attention in their own right. In 2011, the ﬁlms were repaired and returned to the Navajo Nation for public screenings, the ﬁrst step in a process of repatriation and resigniﬁcation that mirrors the repatriation of other visual media to Navajo and indigenous communities. The return of the ﬁlms offersa unique opportunity to reexamine the meanings of the ﬁlms and the project itself, reframing the discussion around issues of visual sovereignty, community reengagements, and “reclaiming” Diné/Navajo histories.
