    • Synopsis
    • "Del Maguey al pulque" is a film which allows an approach to the pulque culture, offers a course during the one year realized inside some of the towns belonging to Puebla, Mexico City, and Tlaxcala

      This movie gets a piece of memory, which will eventually have their historical value, either by the absence, preservation or processing from people or the place, whose essence was captured just a little piece, mostly about the journey ; It must be said that this video can not be conceived as an element isolated

      Serves way to move closer to community life that teaches us and shows values intrinsically related to the remains of a prehispanic cosmogony where this ancient drink called pulque seems key in the ties between any farm or ranch despite its distance.

      Showing us the evolution in cultivation, consumption and sale likewise the few practices that could not be erased with the Inquisition or wars of conquest; This work is an invitation to attend first hand the praise or the verses poeticize plant and drink, rhymes that immortalize the scratching and who gets drunk; that intoxicated that is not reached with any drink, because only you can say that one is in "state pulque".
