Acteal: 10 Years Of Impunity And How Many More?

2008, 45 min.

When government allied paramilitaries massacred 45 Mayans in the Highland of Chiapas, it awakened the world to the human rights abuses that followed the Zapatista uprising. Mexico's Supreme Court recently released many of those convicted of the 1997 crime on grounds that the investigation and prosecution was flawed. Introduced by Bill Jungels who was in the area and spoke with members of the Abejas as the Supreme Court decision was coming out.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
