Three films exploring Latinx Indigenous Mesrize identity, sexuality, the body and the cultures, desires and histories it contains.
Roberto Fatal \[they/them/ellos\] is a filmmaker and storyteller. They come from Rarámuri, Tewa Pueblo, Ute, and Spanish ancestors and Mexican-American culture. Their Queer, gender fluid, Mestize/Mixed identity informs the sci-fi, apocalyptic films they make. Their work centers on humans who sit at the intersections of time, space and culture. From this unique vantage point, these characters can bridge divides, see all sides, find new paths forward and recall multiple histories long forgotten. Survival, intersectional identity, perseverance, love, empathy, community, connection and creation are at the heart of their characters and films. Fatal is a Sundance Indigenous Film Fellow and an Imagine Native Director's Lab feature film fellow.
Withfriends believes in building financial resilience for small businesses.
