Porous Borders: Documentary Films of Natalia AlmadaFrom the transnational dimensions of narco-corridos to the material expression of symbolic power in the form of extravagant mausoleums, Natalia Almada offers unique and intimate portrayals of cultural phenomena stemming from the Mexican drug trade. Departing from the experience of common people, these films shed light on the complex interrelations between violence, immigration, the economy, and cultural production.
As well as receiving the 2009 Sundance Documentary Directing Award, Almada has received the MacArthur, Guggenheim, USA Artists, Alpert and MacDowell fellowships. She graduated with a masters in fine arts in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design and currently lives in Mexico City. Natalia Almada is scheduled to be present at all events.
Screenings are free, but ticketed. Sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, College Arts and Humanities Institute, Latino Studies Program, Department of Communication and Culture, Department of American Studies, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Film and Media Studies, and IU Cinema.
