Siempre Andamos Caminando (We Are Always Walking)

Screening to be followed by a discussion with Dinazar Urbina Mata

We’re thrilled to be co-presenting the NYC premiere of Siempre Andamos Caminando (We Are Always Walking) with Ambulante and as a part of our ongoing collaboration with Proyector, a showcase of contemporary independent Mexican films.

We Are Always Walking / Siempre Andamos Caminando is a film about the trips undertaken to the coast by people of Santa Cruz Zenzontepec—a chatino municipality in Oaxaca’s Sierra Sur— in order to work, mainly, as farmers or traders. The journey to Santa Rosa de Lima, a small coastal town whose main income comes from agriculture and commerce, takes seven hours by car. Julia, a 28 years old woman from Cofradía, Zenzontepec, was fifteen the first time she made the trip. She enjoys more living at the coast rather than at the sierra. At a very young age, Catalina migrated from Xochistlahuaca and started working as a housekeeper. Nowadays, she sells food and feels like she belongs more in Santa Rosa than her birthplace. Alberta, a 21 years old woman also from Cofradía, isa single mom who travels, carrying her baby, to work.

Special thanks to program partners Cinema Tropical, Mexican Cultural Institute NY, RemezclaCinelandia and to Ambulante for co-presenting.

Join us following the film with director Dinazar Urbina Mata who will be in attendance for conversation.
