About

Gods of Mexico is a creative documentary that delves into ways of resistance to modernization in rural Mexico, portraying the great diversity of many communities of Native Peoples and Afro-descendants throughout the country. It is a tribute to the human being, his daily labor, and to those who fight to preserve their cultural identity. We will explore this “Lost Atlantis” where countless possibilities of existence continue to resist in the shadow of modernization, against that kind of progress which— marching at full speed— displaces any critical consideration on the direction and values to follow.
