Visiting Film Artist: Filméxico 2018

Published in Events & News
Gabriella Badillo
May 5/18 - 5/19
Free Admission
Filméxico 2018 this year includes two feature films, a documentary, and a shorts program with special guest director Gabriella Bardillo, for the 7th annual celebration of contemporary Mexican film.
Filmmaker Gabriela Badillo is concerned with the loss of many of the pre-Mexican languages of Mexico. After her grandfather, a native speaker of a nearly-lost indigenous language, passed away, Badillo embarked on a project to preserve the old stories in their indigenous languages using short animated films. We will see several of these on the opening night of Filmexico.
