Guie’dani’s Navel Xquipi’ Guie’dani

Synopsis

“Won two prizes at Impulso Morelia’s pix-in-post competition, the Festival’s major industry event.” –Variety

This incisive portrait of racism and classism follows young Zapotec Guie’dani, who moves from her Oaxacan village to Mexico City when her mother takes a job as a live-in housekeeper for a wealthy family. Defiant and morose, Guie’dani abhors their new roles in service. Newcomer Sótera Cruz brings razor-sharp intensity to her portrayal of a girl determined to fight for her dignity.

  •  Spanish, Zapotec with subtitles
