Watch: Maize in Times of War (May 7 – 13) (Virtual Cinema Screening)

You are invited to watch Maize in Times of War beginning May 7 – 13.

Growing “la milpa” is an act of resistance, a profoundly political one. Maize In Times Of War, directed by Mexican Director Alberto Cortés, traces the yearly cycle of four Indigenous maize farmers in different regions of México. This film draws the exceptional process of growing maize, the delicacy of selecting seeds and preparing the land, and the tenacity required throughout the whole process until the harvest arrives. In Tseltal, Ayuujk, Wixárika & Spanish with English Subtitles. 88 minutes.
