Weaving Worlds at Cine Las Americas

Support our friends and their fantastic film!

TricksterFilms is pleased to announce the screening date of their documentary film WEAVING WORLDS at the Cine Las Americas Festival in Austin, Texas.

WEAVING WORLDS highlights the untold stories of the personalities and characters involved in the making and selling of Navajo rugs. The film presents a compelling and intimate portrait of economic and cultural survival through the art of weaving in the face of increased globalization. Director BENNIE KLAIN has a keen and compassionate eye, and he allows viewers into the world of indigenous artists and their struggle to maintain pride and cultural vitality through creating their textiles and “reweaving the world.” The result is a poignant digital portrait of Navajo artisans and their unique—and often controversial—relationship with white Reservation traders.

WEAVING WORLDS screens at the Hideout Theatre on Sunday, April 22 at 4pm.
