About the Author

Freya Schiwy is associate professor of media and cultural studies at the University of California, Riverside.


"A highly original analysis of community, indigenous, and activist media in contemporary Mexico. Schiwy sustains insightful comparisons between contemporary video production and militant Latin American cinema of the 1960s and 1970s, demonstrating with elegance the innovative ways in which contemporary productions construct what she calls a 'decolonial politics of affect' that is analyzed through the categories of visibility, communality, joy, and humor." --David M.J. Wood, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico

"Schiwy accomplishes a genealogical shift that is overdue--repositioning a 'reading' of indigenous media less tethered to cultural anthropology where media makers operate as artists and where their works and process are in dialogue with broader discourses, including those of cinematic traditions in Latin America." --Erica Cusi Wortham, George Washington University
