Mothers of the land

Mothers of the land | Diego Sarmiento, Alvaro Sarmiento

Filmmaker’s statement

MOTHERS OF THE LAND accompanies five women from the Andean highlands in their daily struggle to maintain a traditional and organic way of working the land.

In the Andean Cosmovision, women and earth are strongly interrelated. Both, a women’s body and the earth’s soil are capable of giving and nurturing life.

In the context of an ever-growing industrialization of agriculture, the use of chemical pesticides and genetically modified seeds it is women, who, connected to earth through bounds of sisterhood, take on the role of protectors.


We are ever so very grateful to our Patrons and Friends for supporting the festival.
