Media Arts major Christian Aguirre (Humano Productions) shot, edited, produced, and served as assistant director for Baracutanga’s “Son de la Condenada,” a music video against hate and racism. It took home the award for Best Music Video in the 2017 New Mexico Music Awards.

The video, filmed on location in and around Albuquerque and Bosque Farms, NM and Juarez, MX, takes a stand against hate and racism. It tells the story of an immigrant woman who leaves her family, belongings, and country to migrate from the South (a representation of any region/place labeled as under-developed) to the North (a representation of any region/place labeled as affluent and prosperous). For her, the journey is not about migration to another country just to find work. It is a migration to the North for adventure, knowledge, opportunity, and the kind of friendships she for which she has always longed. La Condenada finds what she is looking for as she makes her way to the United States. Unfortunately she will also discover and endure many hardships and tragedies she never would have imagined on her journey to a new life.
