Comprensión de mi Colección de Chistes

Description:

A collection of jokes-on-camera by men in Michoacán Mexico. Gathered in the surrounding areas while I was at Guapamacátaro artist residency, the collection was compiled onto a DVD, and DVDs were given back to the people who told me jokes. Upon arrival back to the United States I attempted to subtitle the videos with my limited knowledge of Spanish.
