Los Desnudos is a group of 400 Mexican farmers that the government drove off their land. They had been seeking justice for years, but nobody paid any attention to them; it was as if they did not exist. So they invented a new form of struggle to make their voices heard: protesting completely nude in the streets of Mexico twice a day until achieving victory. Los Desnudos is about the image of the colonized body and its re-appropriation by the indigenous subject. It is one of three films in the series Our Bodies Are a Weapon, which brings together people who assert the body as a locus of political and social resistance. The video will be screened at the Frac as part of Grand Arles Express, complementing Clarisse Hahn’s solo show at the Rencontres d’Arles 2021.
Accessible upon presentation of the Rencontres d’Arles 2021 pass.
