A CONVERGENCE THROUGH OUR MEMORIES

A CONVERGENCE THROUGH OUR MEMORIES

I was invited to direct a short fashion project with a fellow Mexican-LA- based production agency; a minute long fashion film for an all-Mexican leather goods brand. Being told that I should create a narrative that would encompass the vast diversity of my country’s culture, my mind immediately thought of Tlatelolco.

A place built upon historical convergence, Tlatelolco houses Brutalist Structures -representing the contemporary Mexico-, ancient Aztec ruins – representing pre-colonialism times- and a sixteenth century Church – representing the Spanish rule-, it’s a perfect synthesis of what today’s culture actually is. A weird yet perfect intermixture of idiosyncrasies.

I took my film camera to take advantage of such opportunity, as we shot the fashion film around 3 in the morning, we had the privilege of witnessing the sun rising and crawling up the many structures edifying this magical place called Tlatelolco.

For random updates and weird memes, get on our list.
