Hi, I am a visual artist from the Netherlands and will be travelling from San Diego to Mexico to film for a project I working on. I am planning to make portraits of people close to their home and ask them what HOME means to them. The film will contain 100 portaits of people from all over the world. I plan to be in mexico on the 8,9,10 & 11 of july. Who would like to accompany me and my cameraman during those days. I am looking someone who speaks both Spanish and English. And preferably who knows some interesting people to film.
I think you might get more replies if you post your request on Craigslist San Diego:
Well I live in Mexico City and I know people from here, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Puebla and Tamaulipas it depends on what you want to film, there are people in the cities but on the other hand people who live in other places wich is interesting is not the same to live here in Mexico City than in other places, but of course for everyone is not important how the house is builded, the important thing is... that house is a home... a place to rest, talk with our relatives and have a good time with them.
Well anyway my point is, if you want help I can be your guide, my english is poor, but I know a lot about people and places from here because I'm 100% mexican and I use to travel inside the country I also like to take pictures from places and people, for example for me is interesting to take pics from people in the mountains like in Sierra de Puebla, why? because they have a special way to live and have their own traditions and culture, but you can take pics or film the most common mexican, the standar mexican too... anyway your project seems to be interesting...
