Me reuní con Claudia Norman, fundadora y directora de Celebrate Mexico Now! para conversar un poco sobre el festival  que se realizará en Nueva York del 16 al 30 de Septiembre.  Claudia nos habla un poco de los orígenes del festival hace ya 7 años y de los eventos que nos tiene preparados en esta séptima edición.

New York’s top Mexican chefs from 24 restaurants invent authentic prix fixe menus around the city. Foodies will have a chance to explore Mexico’s flavors at Zarela’s Mexican Corn Kitchen (September 23; Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian), a lecture demonstration by chef Zarela Martinez. Mezcal Tasting (September 18) Oaxaca’s premier family-made spirits. At the Brooklyn Kitchen.

Monica Martinez’s WURMHAUS (September 18; BQE Eyelevel Gallery), an installation that will allow viewers to watch the traditional practice of worm raising crawl, squirm, and change before their eyes.

Fresh perspectives also shine through in featured selected short films and animations from the Morelia Film Festival (September 17; School of Visual Arts). Juried by directors from Sundance to Cannes, Morelia’s winners include the striking “Y el agua?,” an animated film written and narrated by the children of Valle de Bravo and the short film “Nebraska” (foto)—about the struggle of a migrant who can’t bear to cross the U.S. border or to return to his family—with its director Adrian Ortiz during a Q&A.

The seventh annual Celebrate México Now! is a multimedia, multi-lingual festival of music, performance, film, installation, and cuisine at multiple venues around New York City. It takes place September 16-30.
