The Private Property Trilogy: A survey of the life and films of C. B.
Natalia Brizuela teaches in UC Berkeley’s Departments of Film and Media and Spanish and Portuguese.
Nicolás Pereda draws on both documentary and fiction in films that have been described as “meticulous, minimalist, deadpan.” We welcome him to UC Berkeley’s Department of Film and Media with a presentation of one of his recent pieces. He writes, “The Private Property Trilogy . . . is a film performance lecture that surveys the life and work of C. B., a multifaceted artist, political activist, amateur archeologist, self-proclaimed anarchist, and creator of a mining museum in the northern Mexican desert. Stories of land rights and artistic endeavors become inextricably linked as I uncover the missing fragments of C. B.’s personal history.”
