Abstract [en]

Indigenous people in Mexico are generally put at the bottom of the social scale and suffer from discrimination. This also becomes apparent in media, where indigenous people are traditionally being left out, misrepresented and underrepresented This racist discourse has its origins in the politics of mestizaje and the subsequent social whitening. Recently, we notice an upsurge of fiction film that tries to decolonize mediatic representations of indigenous people and goes beyond stereotypical depictions. By means of a critical discourse analysis, two recently produced Mexican fiction films were analyzed, in order to identify counter-discourses. In both films it has been recognized that indigenous people are seen as active subjects, with the possibility of an upward social mobility. Further, rather than being represented as ‘the Other’, the cinematography represents them as ‘us’. Thus, creating a sense of identification with the main protagonists. These narratives and counter-discourses can help to adjust the position of indigenous people in Mexican society. It can disrupt racial discrimination and hierarchical relationships of power and divert this racist discourse.
