Don Fidencio


Rental Format(s): 16mm
Sale Format(s): DVD-R

An intimate portrait of an old blind Oaxacan musician, who made his sound famous in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico while begging in the streets. The camera passes by as a metaphor of the people who could have but never really helped him. The film is a personal satire of the "Music Video" commercial format so common on TV. This was Don Fidencio's last performance ever captured on film celluloid of his famous song "Mil Problemas" (A thousand Problems).

Un retrato íntimo del viejo músico invidente Oaxaqueño, que pidio limosna en las calles de Oaxaca, México y que se hizo famoso ciudadano ilustre del multivisitado pueblo. La cámara cinematográfica al pasar se convierte en la metáfora de la gente que nunca le ayudó mas que con un par de monedas. La película es una satira de los #videos musicales# (Music Video) comerciales de la televisión. Esta representa su ultima presentación, nunca antes capturada en cine de su sonido unico con la canción "Mil Problemas."
