Film Screening: Huicholes: The Last Peyote Guardians

October 19, 2016 | 7:00PM - 8:00PM

Director: Hernán Vilchez, 2014, running time: 2 hours, 5 minutes

Huicholes documents the story of the Wixárika people, one of the last surviving indigenous cultures in Latin America. The film chronicles the struggle of the Wixárika to preserve Wirikuta (the Center of the Universe), their most sacred territory, from incursions by the Mexican government and transnational mining companies. The film was produced by Kabopro Films on behalf of the Wixáritari (Huichol) families and elders of La Laguna Seca, Jalisco. David Shorter, UCLA Professor of World Arts and Cultures, provides an introduction to the film.
