The Audiovisual Emergency Fund “Sifonóforo” has the support of relevant people in Mexican cinema, for example, directors Guillermo del Toro, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Alfonso Cuarón, actress Salma Hayek and actor Gael García. Technical workers who need financial assistance must register on the website of the Mexican Academy of Cinema.
The money is to buy food and finance the creation of artistic projects since due to the Covid-19 pandemic most of the artists are not working. The artists have recorded a video singing the song “Te mando una canción” to publicize the campaign.
The picture was accompanied with a caption reading: “My wife hates it when I work from home.” Since his work rose in the 90s, Banksy has usually sent awareness messages. Millions of people around the world, who cannot work from home, have lost their regular income due to the pandemic.
