Nana Dijo is a cartography of the Black experience through a collection of narratives in first person. Nana Dijo is an urgent historical registry filmed in Mexico, Honduras, Uruguay, Argentina and the United States, which opens a crucial platform of analysis about race relations/politics by transgressing beyond the parameters of "safe discourses" imposed by culturalist agendas. The narrative sewed into Nana Dijo grows out of the body of the oppressed trespassing geo-political borders. Nana Dijo pursues processes of empowerment while being critical towards exoticization within hegemonic cultural industries. Nana Dijo is the complexity in the colonized psyche; Our elders vernacular manifestation. Nana Dijo; Irresolute Radiography of Black Consciousness is the first documentary collaborative project directed by Bocafloja in collaboration with Cambiowashere.

40min. English & Spanish w/Subtitles in both languages.
