The Modern Jungle; Screening with: Pushing Myanmar
Scheduled to attend: Rosario Sotelo (Cinematographer

Synopsis: The Modern Jungle is a portrait of globalization filtered through the fever dream of a Mexican shaman, don Juan, who falls under the spell of a pyramid-scheme-marketed nutritional supplement. Juans neighbor Carmen lives simply, in harmony with the land her martyred husband paid for with his life. THE MODERN JUNGLE documents their struggles and encounters with outside forces: from capitalism and commodity fetish, to the culture of cinema, and the directors of this film.

Director: Saul Kak is an artist, activist, speaker of Zoque, and member of this thousand- year-old culture. Kak's paintings have exhibited widely across the Americas. He also produces performance, video, and documentary to bring attention to the plight, rights, and struggles of his people.

Charles Fairbanks grew up in Nebraska and wrestled at Stanford, where he studied Art and STS. The founding professor of Media Arts at Antioch College, Fairbanks has also taught videoarte and cel-phone videography in Mexico. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, MacDowell Colony, and the Wexner Art Centers Film/Video Studio Program.
