Driving Question: How might we convey the intersection of local arts and economy through documentary filmmaking?

What were your goals for this module? How did you achieve them?

To inform others about local artists in Oaxaca relating to art and the economy. 

What new things did you learn about yourself?

Throughout this module, we learned multiple different things: From how art and economy in Oaxaca are changing to learning how to edit and film our very own documentary. This module also tested our limits, as it was very demanding no matter how interesting, and we can say that we are very proud of our final result.

What are your big takeaway lessons from this project?

Our biggest takeaway is how the art industry has evolved here and how that impacts the artists here in Oaxaca, and how there is more openness to expressing oneself through art.
