Mexico

A Land of Heritage 

We traveled to Central Mexico to document the stories of local communities who were safeguarding endangered food traditions, farming techniques, and indigenous food. We returned from our visit with a newfound respect for our kind, compassionate, neighbors. Woven into the films are lessons of finding and creating meaning & use in other’s waste, of the deep love and fulfillment one can find in building a community centered upon a common goal, and the duty and subsequent gratification one feels in working with the land.
