Religious studies professor presents first independent film

Loyola press release - October 11, 2007

(New Orleans)ŚPart-time faculty member in the Religious Studies Department and New Orleans filmaker Nina Muller-Schwarze will have a showing of her film, ôDiablo Rojos: Los Buses de Panamaö at the Asian Pacific Cafe on Sunday, October 14, at 7 p.m.

The film describes explores bus art in Panama and examines globalization and cultural identity through the symbol of the Panamanian painted bus.

While living and doing research in Panama, Muller-Schwarze developed friendships with local artists and a mutual interest in the local bus art and how it was affected by the privatization of the bus transportation system in Panama. They decided to document the process. Through a series of coincidences and creative energy, Muller-Schwarze became a self-taught film maker. She located resources for music and editing, and taught herself to edit, which took a year. The film was nominated for two awards, in the categories of material culture and student work, at the 2007 Royal Anthropological Institute film festival held last summer in England.

Muller-Schwarze is currently a doctoral student in anthropology at Tulane University, where she earned her masterĺs degree. She earned her BA at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
