Between Knots —
a short for the Raramuri

Original title: Caminando fuerte, caminando juntos

The indigenous Rarámuri communities of the Sierra Tarahumara in Chihuahua, México are suffering an increase in physical and sexual abuse of children and women, along with the devaluation of domestic activities since the pandemic. My colleagues and I made several animations to be displayed in several communities to raise awareness and ultimately inspire change. Here's the one I did alongside some great people.

Thanks to all the mentors, family and friends that pushed us forward during this project.
