SPEAKER BIO:

Simón Sedillo is a community based human rights film-maker whose work has centered on placing skills, cameras and editing equipment in the hands of communities in resistance so that they may be able to document their own histories and human rights situation. Sedillo has spent the last 6 years documenting and teaching community based video documentation in indigenous communities in Oaxaca, in immigrant communities in the US, and with youth of color across the US.

Today Sedillo shares some experiences and perspective for international audiences in the US and Europe, on the local and global implications of the Oaxacan people’s struggle. Through lectures, workshops, and screenings Sedillo helps open a powerful space for dialogue on the effects of neoliberalism on indigenous communities in Oaxaca, immigrant communities around the world, and communities of color in the US. Through collaborative media projects, Sedillo’s work has contributed to a growing network of community based media activism whose primary objective is to share, teach, and learn from one another, about popular community based resistance and the collective construction of horizontal networks of popular power.

Sedillo is currently on tour screening short film segments from oaxaca and presenting workshops on the following topics.

-Neoliberalism 101
-From Militarism to Paramilitarism
-Mesoamerican Indigenous Principles of Unity and Resistance
-Challenging International Solidarity: Alternative Media, Human Right’s, and Self-determination
-The commodification of sustainability and resistance
-The Fight for Community Rights
-Bringing it home: The effects of the neoliberal political economy on immigrant communities, and communities of color in the US
