  1. Recognitions & reviews for Transnational Fiesta: 1992

  1. “One viewing of this film should shatter any residual notions about indigenous communities as isolated and ‘traditional.’  This is a must-see film for anyone interested in indigenous culture, culture, migration, Andean communities or the ethnography of the transnational village in which we all now live.”

  2. -Michael Kearney, Prof. of Anthropology, University of California, Riverside

  3. “This wonderful film brings home the realities of transnational connections and Andean identities with a vibrant

  4. clarity that makes it a major contribution to the understanding of modern Latin America. Many anthropologists

  5. and filmmakers have portrayed Andean culture as static and doomed to disappear in the forward march of

  6. modernity. Full of vivid imagery, this superb film provides a very different view, showing the hybrid and

  7. dynamic quality of identity in highland South America and cracking apart the old stereotype of Andean

  8. parochialism and timelessness.”

  9. -Orin Starn, Prof. of Anthropology, Duke University

  10. “Timely and insightful...An invaluable tool in a spectrum of disciplines such as cultural anthropology,

  11. ethnic studies, Latin american studies, sociology and international relations.”

  12. -Andrei Simic, Prof. of Anthropology, University of Southern California
