Ambulante, the non-fiction film series started by Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, and Pablo Cruz that takes place in Mexico is now heading to Nicaragua with eight titles.
Founded in 2005, the non-profit Ambulante organization is divided into 5 areas: The Ambulante Documentary Film Festival, Beyond Ambulante, Ambulante Abroad, The Gucci Ambulante Documentary Fund, and Distribution.
“Ambulante adopts an interventionist, rather than merely an expository stance, by bringing documentary films to places where they are rarely seen in order to help develop an audience that can actively participate in the re-imagi(ni)ng of a diversified media culture,” said the organization in a statement on their website.
On November 16, Ambulante will arrive in Nicaragua. In collaboration with the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, the Cultural Center of Spain in Nicaragua and the Mexican Embassy in Nicaragua, the Documentary Film Festival will take place through December 1 in the country’s capital Managua as well as León and Granada.
