Summary
This film gives us an intimate look at a resilient and spirited woman whose forbearance and skill as a weaver keeps her family afloat through difficult economic times. Life in a small village in Mexico's Sierra Norte has not been easy for Panchita and other indigenous people. Through her eyes one can see how the forces of global economy affect her people. They have been marginalized by Mexico's central government. Their land has been degraded and waters polluted by industries in which they have no stake. Their religion and culture is challenged by the secular outside world.The film shows us the busy Cuetzalan market where this champion weaver sells her wares. She speaks Spanish to tourists and bargains in her own Nahuatl idiom with local peasants. Panchita's everyday experiences are interwoven with memories of a difficult childhood and dreams of a better future for her children. She embroiders her stories with vivid strands of anecdotal feeling, fortitude, devotion and humor.Panchita wants to arrange a "traditional" Mother's Day ceremony for her 80-year-old mother at the homestead in remote Topango, where most of her family still lives. The news of this impending event is reported by Cuetzalan's indigenous radio, "The Voice of the Sierra," whose popular broadcasts reinforce the sense of community. An important film for anthropology and Latin American studies
