Itu Ninu is a captivating sci-fi film by Mixtec director Itandehui Jansen, recipient of the Cynthia Lickers-Sage Award for Emerging Talent at imagineNATIVE 2013. It unfolds in 2084 and follows the journey of two climate migrants, Ángel and Sofia, whose paths intersect, revealing a shared connection through the Mixtec language. Exchanging letters, an art form lost in their meticulously surveilled smart city, they look to each other for connection and, beyond that, liberation from their desolate and oppressed lives. Itu Ninu highlights the interconnections of climate change, surveillance, and migration with the Indigenous experience. It was produced with sustainability in mind, using existing locations, props, and wardrobe to combine artistic expression with environmental responsibility.

In Mixtec and English with English subtitles
