International Documentary Film Festival of Mexico City (DOCSMX)
We live in the information society, in the network society, in an interconnected world. However, we also live in that of mediations; in that of manufactured content, industrially and massively; in the one-way media, which take our homes and our leisure moments without being able to respond, question, let alone criticize.
In this multiscreen world, which offers us more and more ways to communicate, we are, paradoxically, more disconnected, more isolated in our individualisms and in our conversations generated by keyboards or the sound bites of voice messages, in our feelings expressed through emojis and ready-to-eat ready-to-eat information just a click away.
Fortunately, this mediation and the globalized ecosystem in which we live offers more possibilities than inconveniences. From local cultures we must celebrate diversity and make it see the world. We can, thanks to the new media at our disposal, choose the news and stories that really matter to us, eliminate the mediations that filter, process and distort portions of reality and have direct contact between equals, between human beings. DocsMX, as a film festival dedicated to non-fiction, as a means of communication - not only of information - is a space for meeting and cultural agitation that brings together these possibilities, which are more urgent than ever in this 21st century.See more
