These recent experimental, documentary, and animated films feature questions of postcolonial history and identity, a daughter who wants to flee, a world where the deepest thoughts emerge, strange conditions, a community founded by volcano eruption refugees, and an astronomical record.

This ethnographic excursion is a feast for the eyes paced by the quotidian chorus of sounds in a Chiapan village. Gradually, political themes arise. As it relates to the legacy of co-director Saúl Kak’s refugeed forebears, (((((/*))))) aka Echoes of the Volcano gives voice to the Zoque struggle for Indigenous sovereignty, against the neoliberal state.
