CHIAPAS MEDIA PROJECT
CHIAPAS MEDIA PROJECT

The Chiapas Media Project is a bi-national partnership that provides video equipment, computers and training enabling marginalized indigenous and campesino communities in Southern Mexico to help them create their own media. Join the WNY Peace Center for a special reception as we welcome two weavers from a Chiapas collective who are trying to resist globalization within their trade by keeping the means of production and fruits of their labor in their own hands. They will show slides of their work, followed by a program of three short videos, including:

RECLAIMING JUSTICE: GUERRERO’S INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY POLICE  
(Spanish with English subtitles, 26 min., 2002)  
This is the story of 42 Mixteco and Tlapaneco communities in the Costa-Montaña region of Guerrero who, faced with injustice and corruption of local authorities, established the Indigenous Community Police (ICP) in 1995. 

SONG OF THE EARTH: TRADITIONAL MUSIC FROM THE HIGHLANDS OF  CHIAPAS  
(Tzotzil with English subtitles, 17 min., 2002)
Tzotzil elders explain the significance of traditional music and the role of musicians in their communities. 

ZAPATA’S GARDEN   
(Tzeltal and Spanish with English subtitles, 19 min., 2002)    
Shot and produced by indigenous men and women video makers in the Autonomous Municipality of Emiliano Zapata this video looks at the new society that the Zapatista’s are building.

Tony Conrad @ Hallwalls


Culled from nearly 40 years of Hallwalls' still and video archives (1977–2014), this exhibition will serve as a prelude to Introducing Tony Conrad, the upcoming retrospective at the UB Art Gallery and Albright Knox Art Gallery, by showcasing a selection of performances and still imagery documenting Conrad's decades-long association with Hallwalls.
