In these two curated programs, we meet the inhabitants of lands scarred by legacies of toxic colonialism and violent extraction. Here, survival is a mode of resistance, and it is done by making space for grief, fear, and doubt but also moments of humor, intimacy, care, and, in the words of Sofía Gallisá Muriente, “obstinate joy.”

    *Please note: these programs include discussion or depiction of sexual situations and natural disaster. Please contact us at info@urbanvideoproject.com with any questions about content.
