About the Artists
Colectivo Los Ingrávidos
Colectivo Los Ingrávidos (Tehuacán, Mexico) is a group of independent artists who experiment with documentary approaches and found footage. Their goal is to challenge the commercialization of audiovisual creativity and the tedium of conventional television and cinema production. Colectivo Los Ingrávidos arose as a resistance movement and collective action that began cooperating amid major protests against the Mexican government, reporting through an anonymous YouTube channel for fear of retaliation. Their work has been shown extensively around the world. They were featured filmmakers in the 67th Flaherty Film Seminar, Continents of Drifting Clouds (2022) curated by Almudena Escobar López and Sky Hopinka.
