Oaxaca Day of the Dead Film in Production

Day of the Dead in Oaxaca is celebrated with energy, solemnity, respect, and joy. That’s why we focus on it with Day of the Dead Photography Expedition workshop. Still a few places open!

A couple of weeks ago, University of Wisconsin-Madison textile and design associate professor Carolyn Smythe Kallenborn sent me an announcement of her upcoming film, Life and the Dead.

Yesterday, when she came to the casita for dinner with Ale, Tito, Liliana, Santiago, Claudia, Fe and Lola, Carolyn talked more about how she plans to integrate an exhibition of traditional Oaxaca textiles with the video.

The film will be available in October 2014.

  1. I have no doubt that Carolyn Kallenborn’s film Life and the Dead shall be as informative and entertaining as her film on Oaxacan weavers (Woven Lives – Vidas Entretejidas). Combining a professional background in design with an intimate knowledge of Oaxaca has already resulted in one first-class film. Fortunate inhabitants and visitors to Oaxaca may have seen her exhibition at the Textile Museum. I’m sure her documentation of the Day of the Dead and its traditions will further expand on the fascinating culture one encounters in Oaxaca.
