Danza Aztecac en Filadelfia - Ollin Yoliztli Calmecac- Finalistas “Transito MX 02”: Festival Internacional de Artes Electronicas

Finalist in “Transito MX 02”: Festival Internacional de Artes Electronicas Video: 10/2007
The Transitio MX 02 festival titled Nomadic Borders has the initiative of creating action and reflection over the concept of community. In this sense an allusion is made to the metaphor of the border as a non-place, a symbolic site that draws a territorial line and opens a new possible future for convergence to occur. Danza Azteca en Filadelfia was the film use for this festival. www.transitiomx.net/concurso/finalistas
