A documentary film about “Mare” a female hip hop artist from Oaxaca, Mexico. Mare is medicine for the devaluating experiences of many young women of color today. As a young native Zapotec female MC born in Oaxaca City, her unique life experience is a rarely heard perspective on life and community liberation. As an up and coming MC in a state know for popular and indigenous rebellion, Mare’s life and experience has been channeled into very power full and conscious rapping and singing.
After the film screening a concert will take place where the protagonist of the documentary “Mare” and other local artist from Watsonville ( Jorge Flores & SEP) are going performing spoken word poetry.

Donations are accepted
