DIGNICRAFT a border collective on art and activism.

Ana Paola Rodríguez, Omar Foglio, José Luis Figueroa, and David Figueroa are Dignicraft, a hybrid between an art collective and activist media production company and distributor of cultural goods, inspired by human dignity and justice, the artisanal process of creation and the potential of collaboration to spark change. The collective produce documentaries, distributing cultural goods such as films and crafts with a great story behind them, or imparting a collaborative workshop as part of a contemporary art project. Dignicraft was born from the evolution of collective work that we started in 2000 under the name Bulbo and Galatea audio/visual.

At the FS&P they will show and discussed their collaboratively work.

They will feature the short film “Fotoperiodista: Documenting Tijuana’s Refugee Crisis”, 2017 (15min). The film portrays the work of Omar Martínez, a photojournalist from Tijuana following the situation of the more than 8000 Haitian migrants who have arrived in this city looking to apply for a humanitarian visa to enter the United States. The film shows the Caribbean migrants as the new regulation cancelling the TPS for Haitians comes into effect.

See the article written by Mariana Martínez Estens on the issue. The film’s music was made by Phil Beaumont and Matt Resovich from Little White Teeth.

Forum for Scholars & Public’s. Tuesday October 3, 2017. 12pm-1pm.
