The Voice of Sierra Nevada
Research video; 2015-2016; Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia
Collaborative video with the Arhuaco community from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. The main protagonist is the indigenous communicator and director, Amado Villafaña, head of Zhigoneshi and Yokosowi - indigenous filmmaking collectives.
This Video forms a practical element of my practice-based PhD project which explores the questions of indigenous self-representation practices in the region as a response to European misrepresentations of the Arhuacos, as well as violence and forced displacements in the region.
This video focuses specifically on the nature and reasons of indigenous filmmaking, exploring the questions of the ownership of the images, politics of representations and distribution.
