“Riveting!”– San Francisco Chronicle
“Very cool movie!” – John Sayles, Director
“Gosling and Osborne…bring great enthusiasm to their subject…It’s easy to be seduced by this film’s warm-hearted…vision.” – The New York Times
Blossoms of Fire is a dazzling, whirling dance of a film that celebrates the extraordinary lives of the Isthmus Zapotecs of southern Oaxaca, Mexico, whose strong work ethic and fierce independent streak rooted in their culture, have resulted not only in powerful women but also in the region’s progressive politics and their acceptance of alternative gender roles.
The screening benefits the community portrayed in the film, now recovering from the devastating Mexican earthquakes and aftershocks of September 2017.
Written and Directed by Maureen Gosling. 2000. 75min. Digital HD.
