SIX DOCUMENTARIES AND A FILM ABOOUT MEXICO CITY

TITA prompts us to confront our own assumptions, misconceptions and positioning around the issue of domestic labor conditions in Mexico City. She shows us how to look beyond the implications of the terms “la sirvienta” (the servant), “la criada” (the house-maid), “la muchacha” (the girl). With contagious exuberance, she invites us to shift our gaze and bear witness to the implications of being TITA, a twenty-year-old woman recently migrated to Mexico city from a fishing village in Oaxaca. A woman whose fierce independence and optimism are the means by which she will make true her dreams and aspirations.

TITA nos mueve a confrontar nuestras presuposiciones, conjeturas y posturas alrededor del tema. Nos enseña cómo mirar más allá de lo que implican los términos “la sirvienta”, “la criada”, “la muchacha”. Con una exuberancia contagiosa, ella nos invita a volver la mirada y ser testigos de lo que implica ser TITA, una mujer de veinte años, recientemente migrada de Álvaro Obregón, un pueblo pesquero en Oaxaca, a la Ciudad de México. Una mujer cuyo optimismo y arrojo serán los factores que la impulsen a realizar sus sueños y anhelos.
