Luciana and the Weavers—Treasures of the Heart
This short film documents the work of “Tesoros del Corazon,” a Mayan women’s weaving cooperative in the village of San Martin, Guatamala. Luciana is their spokewoman and co-founder, supported by the California-based organization Xela Aid. The film is part of a larger project–Encoded Textiles–launched by multi-media artist, Guillermo Bert, whose projects enlist the artistry of traditional weavers from throughout Native America combined with technology ‘portals’ woven into the tapestries, and are in turn activated by smartphones to take viewers into the filmic world of weaving communities.
Screening: Friday, Sept. 30
Theatre: City Hall
