    • Synopsis
    • Maize in times of war traces the yearly cycle of four Indigenous maize plots (called milpas due to the diversity of crops they entail) in different regions of México. This film draws the exceptional process of growing maize, the delicacy of selecting seeds and preparing the land that will receive them, the tenacity and the nuances involved in taking care of the whole process, until the harvest arrives after working for months and the family enjoys the vital uses of its fruits.
