Film Screening: NEGRA
March 21 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm CDT
The Moody College’s Latino Media Arts and Studies Program, Cine Las Americas, and Malakita Productions present Negra (2020), directed by Medhin Tewolde Serrano. This is the third film in our bi-weekly film series, “Mexico Through the Lens of Women Filmmakers,” which runs from February 21 through April 4, 2023, here at the University of Texas at Austin.
Synopsis: I was about seven years old the first time someone called me “black” on the street. I turned around to see who they were talking to until I realized it was me. What does it mean to live in Mexico as an Afro-descendant woman? Five stories exposing racism, resistance, and auto acceptance.
“Negra” es un documental que narra la exploración de la directora en una búsqueda con otras mujeres afrodescendientes y lo que a cada una le supone habitar México en el cuerpo de una mujer negra. La cineasta trenza historias de 5 mujeres del sureste mexicano, exponiendo el racismo vivido, compartiendo procesos de resistencia y auto-aceptación, las estrategias construidas para trascender los estereotipos, y la celebración de su identidad.
This series is co-sponsored by the Department of Radio-Television-Film, Latinos Studies, and the Teresa Lozano Long Institute for Latin American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, and additional support has been provided by Mujeres en el cine y la televisión/Women in Film and Television.
