Medhin Tewolde Serrano is Eritrean-Mexican woman originally from Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, who has lived in Chiapas for over 10 years. After her training in documentary film making, she became concerned with telling the stories of Others. She has dedicated herself to accompanying participatory video processes and community communication in Spain, Tunisia, Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. Her accompaniment of these processes revealed her own process of constructing identity as an Afro-descendant woman, which motivated her to create a documentary that speaks to the significance and implication of being a Black woman in Mexico.
