The Return of the Native

La mayoría de estatuas de Mao perdieron valor al finalizar la «Revolución Cultural» en 1977. No obstante, muchas personas todavía lo consideran un semidiós y creen que las imágenes pueden proporcionar fortuna o ahuyentar a los malos espíritus. El 26 de diciembre, aniversario de Mao, se celebran procesiones públicas y festividades.

Saut d'Eau Pilgrimage

16 July 2011

Los peregrinos participan en rituales vinculados a un festival religioso anual en la catarata sagrada de Saut d’Eau en Mirebalais, Haití. Este festival combina creencias cristianas y vuduistas, de modo que Saut d’Eau es uno de los destinos de peregrinación más importante del país. Se dice que la Virgen María se apareció allí, sobre una palmera, a mediados del siglo xix, y que el lugar que rodea a la cascada es el hogar de los loa, dioses de origen africano. A menudo, en Haití, las creencias cristianas y las vuduistas se entrelazan. Cada año, del 14 al 16 de julio, los peregrinos se congregan para tocar tambores, bailar, invocar espíritus y bañarse en las aguas purificadoras de Saut d’Eau.

54º world press photo: artes e entretenimento - 3º prémio (singulares)

 

"Fabián López, actor, durante su interpretación en el plató en Tijuana (México) del papel principal de la película El Baleado 2. A sus espaldas se levanta una nube de cocaína en su oficina. Tijuana es un foco de la guerra del narcotráfico que azota México en la vida real. La guerra del narcotráfico ha inspirado el «narcocine» de serie B, un género que se remonta a la década de 1980 pero que se ha vuelto extremadamente violento en los últimos años. Las películas formulaicas y llenas de acción han sido acusadas de exaltar el estilo de vida de los barones del narcotráfico, pero reflejan un mundo que el público reconoce y que son enormemente populares en México y admiradas por los mexicanos asentados en Estados Unidos. Sólo en Tijuana se graban anualmente más de 30 películas similares, y muchos actores alcanzan el estatus de estrella de cine."
