Ch'ul be, senda sagrada
2023 | Color | 70:28

“Ch'ul be" delves into the Tsotsil sacred path, exploring ancient collective commitments that sustain the cycle of life in community. In San Andres Larrainzar, everyone is responsible for the collective well-being, but few are chosen to follow the path of serving the gods. ''Ch'ul be'' is the path of Martha and Diego, and of Roma?n and his son Tino. It is a journey from the everyday to the divine, to ensure that the cycle is not broken.

Jvobtik - Our Music

In a tsotsil community from south Mexico, where all the sounds come to life, the musical tradition of a family of musicians is transmitted from one generation to another: from the grandfather, who lives his last melodies; the son, who assumes the position of traditional musician; and the grandson who has the pleasure to continue with the musical memory of his family.
