Colectivo Los Ingrávidos (Tehuacán) is a Mexican film collective founded in 2012 to dismantle the commercial and corporate audiovisual grammar and its embedded ideology. The collective is inspired by the historical avant-gardes, and their commitment to using both form and content against alienating realities. Their methods combine digital and analog mediums, interventions on archival materials, mythology, agitprop, social protests, and documentary poetry. Their radical experimentations on documentary and cinematographic devices produce images, both visual and auditory that are political possibilities in their own right.

In this interview, Davani Varillas, an artist in Colectivo Los Ingrávidos, discusses the origins of the collective and the political, social, theological, and artistic influences that inform the collective's ethos and practices. 

Davani Varillas is interviewed by Edgar Jorge Baralt, February 17, 2023. The interview is in Spanish with English subtitles.
