CUANDO UNA MUJER ADVANZA & EUFROSINA'S REVOLUTION, co-presented by the Fist Up Film Fest with post film Q&A with Mare Advertencia Lirika
Cuando Una Mujer Avanza (When a Woman Takes a Step Forward) - A documentary film about "Mare" an indigenous hip hop artist from Oaxaca, Mexico. Mare is medicine for the devaluating experiences of many young women of color today. As a young native Zapotec MC born in Oaxaca City, her unique life experience is a rarely heard perspective on life and community liberation. As an up and coming MC in a state known for popular and indigenous rebellion, Mare's life and experience has been channeled into very powerful and conscious rapping and singing. Directed and produced by Simon Sedillo.
Eufrosina's Revolution - In 2007, Eufrosina Mendoza was elected president of Oaxaca's municipal council, but was denied the position because she was an indigenous woman. Instead of stopping her, this denial started her on an even bigger political career. Filmmaker Luciana Kaplan doggedly follows Eufrosina over the years as she attacks gender inequality and the lack of women's voting rights in her community, while being harassed by local government every step of the way. Eufrosina is completely devoted to improving the lives of her people. But as she ascends the ranks of political power, can she still effectuate change from an ivory tower? Eufrosina's Revolution is an eye-opening look at a new breed of politician, one who questions whether power is a problem or a privilege. One who gets things done. One who's smart enough not to think anything will change, but who works in the hopes that it just might. This spring, vote for Eufrosina! Directed by
