Elizabeth Goetz: Mayan Seed Project

Elizabeth Goetz (UC Irvine): $4,810 for Mayan Seed Project. Graduate Arts Grants

Almost twenty years after the end of the Guatemalan Civil War, the women of Rabinal have forged a new community and economic future with the help of al almost forgotten resource: the amaranth seed. Elizabeth Goetz’s video documentary MAYAN SEED PROJECT explores seed sharing as a metaphor for the means by which traditional agriculture practices serve not only to feed people, but to inspire unexpected connections.
