Tuesday, September 22 — 7 PM only at UVic Cinecenta Victoria premier of Huicholes: The Last Peyote Guardians (Huicholes: Los últimos guardianes del peyote) by Hernán Vilchez (Mexico, 2014) – 125 min, followed by Q&A after the show with director Hernán Vilchez. Huicholes: The Last Peyote Guardians is a story about the Wixarika People, one of the last living Pre-Hispanic cultures in Latin America, and their struggle to preserve Wirikuta, their sacred territory and the land where the peyote grows, the traditional plant that keeps the knowledge of this iconic culture of Mexico alive. However, this territory is in danger. In 2010 the Mexican government granted concessions to several mining companies to explore and exploit the area, a natural reserve of 140,000 hectares of desert and hills in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí, rich in gold, silver and other valuable minerals. This visually stunning documentary explores the struggles and hopes of the Huicholes today. Part of the proceeds of the show will support Mosqoy, a registered Canadian charity that promotes educational and cultural rights for Andean communities in Peru (mosqoy.org)
