The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies in partnership with the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center and Celebrate Mexico Now, present Gabriela Badillo’s groundbreaking animated series 68 Voice, 68 Hearts. This as part of Celebrate Mexico Now’s 15th Anniversary Edition.
About the animated series
68 Voices, 68 hearts is a series of animated shorts that retell 68 indigenous stories narrated in their native tongues. This work was created by Gabriela Badillo under the premise that “no one can love what they do not know,” 68 Voices seeks to strengthen bonds between indigenous and non-indigenous language speakers, fostering pride in the indigenous communities that make up Mexico’s cultural richness. More on the series here.
