2018 HEALTHY COMMUNITY FILM SERIES
Upcoming screenings: Sept 13 & 14
Maize in Times of War is an immersive experience into the yearly cycle of four Indigenous maize gardens (called milpas due to the diversity of crops involved). Located in different regions of México, these farmers are México's corn protectors, planting ancient heritage seeds, and defending them against invasive "hybrid" & GMO varieties. This beautifully filmed documentary details the process of preparing the land, planting the milpa, the tenacity and the nuances involved in the growing process, and the resulting milpa harvest. In Indigenous languages with English or Spanish subtitles, see below for details.
