10/04/10 - Tierra Brillante: Omar Foglio and Jose Luis Figueroa

Bulbo, a Tijuana- and Los Angeles-based media collective, explores cultural, artistic and everyday themes often overlooked or under-represented in mass media. Their documentary, Tierra Brilliante ("the brightest glaze") spotlights lead poisoning suffered by practitioners of traditional ceramics in Mexico. Omar Foglio has taught research methodology, communications theory and courses on music and culture at the School of Humanities of Universidad Autónoma de Baja California and at Universidad Iberoamericana Plantel Noroeste. Jose Luis Figueroa has been a trial lawyer and art instructor. He co-directed Tierra Brillante, and Omar Folgio was in charge of production for the same film. Tierra Brillante is a co-production between Galatea and the Mexican Institute of Cinema (IMCINE).
