Further Information: This project is part of research on the indigenous media and art szene in Chiaps (Mexico). When media and art is produced, especially by social or ethnic minorities, such as by people of indigenous societies in Mexico, media expressions often mediate profound social and political meanings, and might have considerable social impact, within, but also beyond a community. The first part of this video  is an interview with the Mexican Tsotsil-Maya artist Ronyk about "indigenous cinema" and reflections on his own short films in the context of issues of "indigenous media". (Interview: Florian Walter/Ronyk/Thomas John)
After the interview follows one of his short films, 'Un Día con Rafa', (2013 Engl. Subtitles).
