ESCENA. Oslo Ibero-amerikanske filmdager 2021
NEGRA is an exploration of what it means to inhabit Mexico as a black woman. It tells the story of five afro-descendant women from southern Mexico, exposing racism, resistance and processes of self-acceptance, strategies for transcending stereotypes, and the celebration of their identity.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion organised in collaboration with Black History Month Norway.
ESCENA. Oslo Ibero-amerikanske filmdager is a platform for cultural exchange between Norway and the Ibero-American region.
ESCENA 21 will present 10 films with wide international recognition of great directors and filmmakers from 7 different countries. Some films will show a realistic portrait of a social and cultural reality, while others take a more magical or even surreal approach.
This year’s edition aims to bring forward the diversity of the Ibero-American cultures: from underground comic book authors to indigenous cultures, from LGTBQ+ rights to elite panic and from the reclaiming of ethnic identity to the life of the elderly.
Accompanying the film program, there will be additional events that will provide an appropriate context for the films, such as conversation with the filmmakers, dance performances and round tables in collaboration with other associations.
