Collaborations

The Indocumentales/Undocumentaries film series aims to build partnerships with individuals, organizations, schools, universities and interested entities interested in discussing themes of US-Mexico immigration.

Indocumentales has partnered in New York City with such organizations as the Americas Society, 92Y Tribeca, NYU Robert F. Wagner School of Public Policy, Queens Museum of Art, Make the Road NY, Cervantes Institute, P.S. 291 Brooklyn, Coalition for Hispanic Family Services, Beacon Center for Arts & Leadership, Dwyer Cultural Center, Casita Maria Center for Art & Education, Museo del Barrio, the NGO Committee on Migration and John Jay College. The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York and World Council of Peoples for The United Nations have provided additional support for the series.

As a traveling film series, the Indocumentales has broadened the geographical scope of the project to include film series outside of New York. In Fall 2010, the series was launched in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Memorial Library. In 2011, the series traveled to the Newark Public Library and to the Migrant Heritage Commission in Washington, DC. In Spring 2012, the series partnered with the University of Arizona’s Center for Latin American Studies. The series is part of a larger series on immigration-related issues entitled the Borderlands Community Film Series.

Indocumentales has been presented at several national and international conferences with the aim of building new partnerships and awareness about the films and issues that make up the film series. Indocumentales was presented at the Tulane Outreach Conference in New Orleans, LA in May 2010; the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) conference in Toronto, Canada in October 2010; at the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM) Conference in Philadelphia, PA in May 2011; and the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) conference in San Francisco in May 2012.
