CINEMA'A, o de cómo curar el mal de archivo


Rental Format(s): Digital File

In the midst of the Mazatec mountains in Oaxaca, there is a place that preserves sounds and images from Huautla's past. This movie starts, as every archive does, with a promise of a future. The Renato García Dorantes archive contains movies in both film and video, as well as photos, cinematographic technology and sound recordings of the Mazatec culture in Oaxaca. Some of them come from what was screened at the Huautla Cinema and others from research made by foreigners and Renato himself. Inti García (Renato's son) and his family are tracing the routes to achieve this encounter with the community.
