EN CAMINO - México, machismo and clouds

En camino is a journey from Mexico City to Mérida. It collects the testimonies of many women and activists. Through their experiences and emotions we address a fundamental question: what does it mean to be a woman in Mexico? The answer is plural and takes us to the themes of economic exploitation; human trafficking; lack of institutional protection; inequality in economic, educational, sexual and reproductive rights; the cultural meaning of the word love; sexual and psychological violence. If these issues are exacerbated in number and intensity in Mexico - among the countries with the highest rate of feminicides and number one in the world for child sexual abuse - they resonate in the rest of the world because of the link that welds capitalism and patriarchy in history. Outside of colonial history, which complicates and aggravates the socio-political situation of Latin American women, the roots are common: the world is still macho, and women are, all too often, pawns of male power. In the texture of their faces, the colours of Mexico, its landscapes, its skies and clouds - because looking at the sky is the fundamental gesture to open new horizons - the women tell us the struggle for the right to be able to say "no".

GIOVANNA a woman of strong character, very special, feminist and addicted to Ballantines, is angry because she has been witnessing several times of despot and unfair treatment and what she cannot understand is that in this era of modernity, there are still such characters who behave like that; but what outrages her most is that there are so many other characters who support such degrading behavior.

The Bridge

In one Eastern Washington city, there is a long history of segregation. Through the decades, the Tri-Cities has existed as a farm region, a plutonium producer for WWII, and a sundown town dubbed the “Birmingham of Washington” by the NAACP. While racial segregation is no longer overt, today, it silently separates the odd amalgamation of Ph.D. scientists, migrant farmworkers, and white nationalists in the region. By exploring her city's history, one woman gains a further understanding of identity by piecing together the messy history before her.
