GEOGRAFÍAS CRUZADAS


Documentary.
Director: Adriana Trujillo
Production company: POLEN.
Countries: México, España.
Year: 2006.

Geografías Cruzadas shows us the diverse aspects in the dynamics of life of two groups of teenagers by means of their own audiovisual productions that were made through intensive workshops (Polen Project) in two different cities: Tijuana, Mexico and Zaragoza, Spain. The products reflect the diverse means of communication with their day-to-day space, their worries and dreams, without leaving out young similarities. Through the participatory method and interviews we witness an exchange of glances in which the Spanish reflect about the dynamics of the Mexican city and the visual productions that were developed there, and Mexicans in turn speak about life, habits and constant change of the Aragonese capital.

The documentary also addresses the historical, social and cultural relationships between the young and chaotic Tijuana and the serene and historic Zaragoza by means of panoramic and archive footage, texts, and music. Geografías Cruzadas is an encounter between these two countries through video and the eyes of the young.
