"Queers, Gringos, and Other Deviants", is a series of urgent new films surveying the contemporary social landscape of Mexico produced by students and professors from the School of Arts of the State University of Morelos (U.A.E.M) just South of Mexico City.

The legalization of same-sex marriage in Mexico City paved the way for “Transgresiones y Diversiones,” a selection of shorts produced by students last semester in the first undergraduate Queer Cinema class ever to be offered in Mexico. Young, queer, first-time filmmakers offer their personal and political visions in these fresh short films.

In times of violent social upheaval in Mexico, U.A.E.M. Professor Greg Berger’s ongoing Revolutionary Tourist Project brings improvised comedy to the streets. "Spring Breakers Sin Miedo" and "Jodido México 2010” are two of the latest shorts in this irreverent series.

Balancing the evening is “The Right to Choose in Peace,” a documentary produced for Latin American network Telesur about the successful, historic struggle to decriminalize abortion in Mexico City and the current threat of violence to women and physicians posed by the collaboration of the Mexican anti-choice movement with radical right-wing organizations based in the United States.

Greg Berger is a Mexico based filmmaker, lecturer, and revolutionary tourist. He is the producer of several award-winning documentary films on grassroots social movements in Mexico and the Americas. Please see: http://gringoyo.com/

Hosted by The Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Student Alliance and Queer@CIIS, California Institute of Integral Studies
