For Pelagia Gutiérrez Vega, cinema is primarily a way for culture’s transmission. Together with her family members and the village’s youth, she is documenting Quechuas medicinal practices for their preservation and survival. This first contact with the video medium is tinged with generosity and openness for this mother of family and ancestral knowledge guardian.
