    • Synopsis
    • This journey has as a goal to show the authentic and traditional treats of the people living in the Southern Towns in the venezuelan Andes. This personal journal, this traveling dairy, will try to reconstruct the ancient path that is designed and modeled in the wooden sculptures, knits, basketwork, straw hats, mats and baskets, which are also part of the oral history, legends and tales in the tradition of those professions. Gestures, silences and songs reveal to us a collective conscience and the roots of a culture.
