Synopsis
In the south of Mexico, the dye indigo has been obtained from the indigo plant in the traditional, very labor-intensive way for centuries. The indigenous women in the mountain village of Hueyápan use this pigment to dye their traditional clothing: the dark blue skirt and their colorfully embroidered capes. Their clothing is an expression of their cultural identity.
But now the blue gold is in crisis, because climate change, lack of rain and poor harvests threaten further cultivation - and with it the traditional knowledge and traditions of the dyers in the Sierra Norte de Puebla. But the women in Hueyápan don't give up...
