This is a short documentary on my grandmother Aurora Martinez, and her recipe on how to make Tamales. I am interested in the preservation of culture and knowledge from older generations. I wanted to explore how media can bridge different generations and cultures by participation and shared experience. In the video we hear another voice which is my grandfather’s, Robert Martinez, his voice acts as the interpreter showing the separation between generations due to the loss of language.

In one scene Aurora asks my wife, Malinda if “she would like to try”, holding a wet husk in her hand, she teaches Malinda how too spread the masa by gesture and demonstration passing on tradition and ritual aspects of a different culture. I approached the editing of this document by using the footage as if they were fragments of faded and confused memories stitched together to tell a story.
