SUNÚ: A Documentary Film & Panel Discussion

Tuesday, February 28, 2017Sunu - S
6:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M.
The Mexican Museum
Purchase Tickets

Seen through the eyes of small, midsize and large Mexican maize producers, SUNÚ knits together different stories from a threatened rural world. The documentary journeys deep into the heart of a country where people are determined to stay free, to work the land and cultivate their seeds, to be true to their cultures and forms of spirituality, all in a modern world that both needs them and despises them. SUNÚ reveals how maize and everything it gives life to could be lost forever. The film shares a generous tapestry of simple, heartfelt messages for the farmers of the world and the city dwellers who could lose the capability to make important choices unless they act soon.

Director Teresa Camou and other notable guests will be at the museum to discuss the topics and questions raised by the film after the screening.
