WEAVING THE FUTURE

FILM GUIDE

Too often stories of indigenous people are told by outsiders. This documentary is no exception. It’s a story made possible only by the generosity of the people of Otavalo. The weavers of Otavalo travel the world. But many people in the United States might be hard pressed to find Ecuador on a map, let alone have any knowledge of native people. I hope that sharing what I have learned, might open the door for viewers who are curious about our changing, interconnected world.
