WAKUKUQ QAYTU (THE THREAD THAT KEEPS US WARM)


Synopsis

Waist weaving is an ancestral practice used by the Peruvian elderly to make most of their clothing. Fortunata and Juan, the two main characters of the film, still use this weaving technique today. They thus show how the fabric is woven, share the story of how they learned to do it, and call upon the young people lest they neglect to place value in this tradition and maintain this practice alive.
