Charles Fairbanks "Archivos de video comunitario de Oaxaca" Notes and Citations
- Otherwise referred to as “the Events,” “the Protests,” “the Rebellion” or “the Magisterial Conflict,” “La Comuna de Oaxaca” emphasizes its resonance with the Paris Commune of 1871.
- Hugo Aguilar Ortiz and Aldo González Rojas are quoted in A los que esta tierra ha visto nacer; Fabiola Gerracio and Valente Soto are quoted in Historias Verdaderas. Both videos are available on the Ojo de Agua website: ojodeaguacomunicacion.org. Aguilar Ortiz speaks Mixteco with Spanish subtitles; all others speak Spanish; English translations are my own.
- Both of these videos were camera originals from completed projects that didn’t include this material; they were selected by exhibition curator Oliver Martínez Kandt and edited by Héctor García Sandoval and Luís Yslhin Alonso. Hence, they do not have titles of their own.
- Documentation of the rebellion was made by Victoria de Todossantos / Mal de Ojo TV.
