68 Voices, 68 Hearts (68 voces, 68 corazones) is a series of animated short films that retell indigenous stories narrated in their native tongues. Created by Gabriela Badillo under the premise that no one can love that which they do not know, 68 Voices seeks to strengthen bonds between indigenous and non-indigenous language speakers, fostering pride in the indigenous communities that make up Mexico’s cultural richness. Celebrate Mexico Now is proud to present the series for the third consecutive year as the project grows and gets closer to finishing the 68 shorts that represent each of Mexico’s indigenous linguistic groups. All films will have English subtitles.
Join us for a Q&A with filmmaker Gabriela Badillo moderated by Diana Vargas, Havana Film Festival after the screening.
This event is presented in collaboration with the Harbourfront Centre, Museo Universitario del Chopo and the Mexican Institute Studies at CUNY.
