Sunday Meeting - Gregory Berger: "Reporting from Mexico in the Age of Trump"

Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

Mexico and its people featured prominently in the fear-mongering campaign rhetoric of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, yet few American voters have a clear understanding of the concerns and political aspirations of ordinary Mexicans. Far removed from the sensational anecdotes of violence in Mexico occasionally picked up by the U.S. media, are lesser-known stories of well-organized social and political movements that have been struggling to redefine the nation's political and social landscape for decades. Once a year, the School of Authentic Journalism trains storytellers and community organizers at its campus in Mexico in techniques for telling those stories more effectively.

For nearly two decades, Greg Berger has satirized Mexican politics and reported on social movements with humor and insight. His parodies have been seen by millions of viewers in Mexico and internationally. A confessed "recovering documentary filmmaker," he is the Co-Director of the Mexico-based School of Authentic Journalism, an intensive training program for communicators and organizers in the art of reporting on social movements. He is also a Professor of Film and Video in the Art Department of the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos, in Cuernavaca. His current project is "El Joe T. Hodo Show," an online comedy talk show produced in collaboration with community organizers from throughout Mexico.
