Cinema Politica is proud to present, as its first instalment of this year’s Divine Interventions series, Hernan Vilchez’s beautifully photographed account of Mexico’s Wixarika tribes ongoing struggles to preserve their ancestral territories from exploitation and destruction by Canadian and Mexican mining corporations. This intersection of spiritual practice and environmental conservation deserves all the attention that it can get because of its urgency and its oversight by mainstream media.
Join the director and the film’s Wixarika protagonists for a pre-film ceremony and a post-film Q&A.
Huicholes: The Last Peyote Guardians will screen in H-110 on Monday, November 24 at 7pm. Admission is by PWYC donation.
