    • Synopsis
    • Weaving Stories is a documentary that reflects the role of the weaver women in Andean
      communities of Bolivia. The purpose of this work is to inform the world of these women,
      expressed through ancient textile techniques. The film contains 22 interviews with artisans from different regions, as well as some of their husbands in order to reflect this reality. On the other hand the film includes the word from four specialists that contextualize the explanations of women.
      First place shows the daily life in the country, pretending to highlight their textile work, in a
      sum of many other activities. Then reflected their first steps in the textile universe, expressed through personal anecdotes with their ancestors. At the same time you can see a oneiric world, where a series of tales and legends become protagonists, either through weave or by oral narratives. Finally, it challenges the textile heritage and future of these ancient techniques, which come endangered by frequent migration from the countryside to the city.
