We are glad to announce one of our Jury Members for the most important category in our festival: the Yucatan Selection.
Robin Canul is an independent filmmaker and photographer working in the Yucatan Peninsula as a communicator and defensor of the historical and cultural mayan territory.
He is best known for co directing the documentary “What Happened to the bees?”.
This documentary exposes the deadly effects of regularly used agrochemicals — currently legal in countries like Mexico and the United States — on millions of bees. The documentary explores how the planting of monocultures threatens the health and environment of Mayan beekeeping communities in southeastern Mexico and portrays their fight to protect their land from massive deforestation, groundwater table pollution, and climate change.

One of the most interesting part of collaborating with film makers and artists in this process is to know their thoughts and opinions. When we first talked to him about this participation as a Jury Member, he told us:
“It is very important for me to learn about new productions and to know what interests permeate in the youth, so it will be a nice opportunity to continue learning through the stories they propose.”

Robin Canul work focuses on community processes, and he runs a cultural center in his hometown in Campeche encouraging social development through theater and cultural contact with all members of the community.

Robin Canul, fotógrafo y realizador audiovisual cuya obra gira en torno al territorio y la identidad en la península de Yucatán.
Hablando con el respecto a esta colaboración como Miembro del Jurado, nos comentó:

“Me es muy importante aprender de nuevas producciones y conocer qué intereses permean en las juventudes, así que será una linda oportunidad de seguir aprendiendo a través de la convocatoria que proponen.”

El trabajo de Robin Canul se centra en los procesos comunitarios, y dirige un centro cultural en su ciudad natal de Campeche que fomenta el desarrollo social a través del teatro y el contacto cultural con todos los miembros de la comunidad.
