about the film :
A healer chosen to heal an ailing country. The Spokeswoman (La Vocera), the one who carries our voices is Maria de Jesús Patricio, the first indigenous woman to aspire to the presidency in Mexico. Her journey also tells the story behind the Indigenous Government Council’s fight to preserve nature and for a new way of understanding progress in the world today.
Gira Zapatista Film Festival, is an initiative to fundraise the visit of Zapatista delegation to Europe which is called Viaje Por La Vida (Journey for Life). A small group of members left Mexico in April this year and set sail (literally) to Spain, 500 years after the supposed conquest of the “New World”. We want to listen to them, to hear their stories of struggles, to weave dialogues and share the experience of radical practices on building other possible worlds, and imagine pluriversal futures.We are excited to welcome 30 members to visit the Netherlands in autumn 2021, from the diverse autonomous indigenous communities in Chiapas, Mexico. And with this film festival, and other activities happening in various cities of the country, we also look forward to spreading their messages that “Another world is possible, where many worlds fit.”, to share with each other and to sow seeds for Life and Hope.

The video calls that we have integrated in our daily lives, give our relation with our reflected self-image a new dimension. A new function was even added to the screen: that of a mirror. While we became set designers of our own screen and camera spaces, we witnessed how certain playful elements invited themselves in the virtual spaces, and with that, in our relation to the other.
In the exhibit SYNTHETIC IDENTITIES, Sickhouse explores the development of AI, CGI and face filters in the context of intense online communication and how they also become the tools of a new generation that is questioning the nuances of their identities. The artists presented here have reclaimed the medium to create their activist tools with it. From videogames and avatar creators tot online profiles, face filter design and interactive 3D modelling, SYNTHETIC IDENTITIES invites you to experience how your inevitable online presence can become an exciting playground for a personal deep dive to the very fringes of yourself.
Also includes the prologue of Filters, Masks & Identities, a research project commissioned by The Overkill for the next edition of their festival Collective Masquerade, and is co-curated by Aynouk Tan and Manique Hendriks.
