Bendición del agua (Water Blessing)


Saturday February 15th, 1:00 – 4:00 PM

A glance into New Mexico’s acequia landscape as seen through the eyes of a young woman. The film brings attention to acequieros who’ve carried on acequia traditions despite challenges of development, rural gentrification and cultural erosion. It is also a call to younger generations to honor ancestral traditions and contribute to a sustainable future through acts of charity, respect, resiliency and a regard for water, land and cultural preservation. Poem by Olivia Romo. Film by Daniel Sonis, with artistic direction from Levi Romero.
