The Film:
We Are Fire 
Statistics on gender-based violence in Mexico are disconcerting. Every day, around 10 women are murdered in the country, and over the last six years, the number of disappeared women and girls has tripled. According to official data, in 2022, a total of 3,754 women and girls were assassinated – and only 947 of them were investigated as femicides.

VR Experience:
We Exist, We Resist
Enter the vibrant world of Maremoto, a young Mexican cartoonist who, through her drawings, empowers women and addresses the taboos of her society. 

Visit Maremoto’s studio, join her on an afternoon of making street art and experience what it feels like to move as a woman through a metropolis in Mexico, a country where 10 women are murdered every day and tens of thousands go missing.
