Published by AAM for the artist's exhibition in 2008. Glasgow-based artist Phil Collins‰۪s film Soy Mi Madre examines the immigrant populations of Colorado‰۪s Roaring Fork Valley, a sizable percentage of which hail from northwestern Mexico. The region relies heavily on service and maintenance work provided largely through this population, who often commute to work in Aspen. Loosely inspired by Jean Genet‰۪s The Maids,åÊSoy Mi Madre portrays the social realities of this region through the melodramatic lens of the telenovela. Reproduced in this volume through a generous selection of stills, the film uses popular Mexican television actors and crew, including Patricia Reyes Spindola, Zaide Silvia Guit̩rrez, Veronica Langer, and Salvador Parra, as well as members of the transsexual prostitute community of Mexico City.
