Mothers of the Land accompanies five women from the Andean highlands in their daily struggle to maintain a traditional and organic way of working the land. In the context of an ever-growing industrialization of agriculture and climate change, it is women who, connected to earth through bounds of sisterhood, take on the role of protectors and pass down the teachings to the next generation.
Mothers of the Land premiered at the 69 Berlin Film Festival and was produced by HDPERU: an indigenous film collective, focused on the defense of native peoples’ rights and environmental conservation in the Andes and the Amazon of Peru.
Sembadoras de Vida is available all of the festival week.
