We are pleased to announce the selection of the project the Mexican delegation that will take part in Doc Lab Montréal, a documentary talent incubator, from November 17 to 22. Forum RIDM is honored to welcome director Sumie Garcia and producer Carlos Paz, who will present their feature-length project Maps of Post-truth.
This collaboration, carried out in partnership with Docs MX festival in Mexico, aims to foster the professional and creative development of this Mexican duo, and to stimulate cross-cultural exchanges with accredited market professionals.
A deep reddish island appears to wobble in the distance. Its cliffs are striated with highly defined sedimentary lines. In the Gulf of Mexico, a small islet with reddish cliffs which seems deserted, has appeared and disappeared from maps and historical records since the early years of the Spanish Colony. Today, director Sumie Garcia, helped with cartography, theories and legends, decides to look for this puzzling island.
This initiative is made possible thanks to financial support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
