Available Now on YouTube! New Short Documentary: Guardians of Stories

On June 20, 2024, we premiere the new short documentary film from our Sihuame Tekikame cooperative: Women Guardians of Stories. Women: Guardians of Stories explores the history of women partners originating from Santa Catarina, Acaxochitlán, and their mission to rescue a lost local backstrap loom technique.

Through months of training, women learn how to complete their traditional dress and reconnect with the lost threads of their culture. This project was funded by PACMYC, produced by PSYDEH A.C., and filmed by Monica Wise Robles and Aurea Itandehui.

In these last weeks, we’ve been so proud to show the final project in different spaces including the primary school where the documentary was filmed, actively promoting local, cultural education with the community’s youth. On its first day, the documentary was seen by nearly 150 students, of which 122 were from CECyTE Acaxochitlán,  the school where the beloved Nancy De Lucio studied for her bachelor’s degree. We plan to organize more screenings in other regions, including Mexico City, and, potentially, a film festival or two very soon!

Ready to watch this masterpiece already? The complete short documentary is available online on YouTube at the link below. Congratulations to our women partners in Acaxochitlán and the entire team that made this project possible!
