About

Women of Earth [Mulheres da Terra] is a project that aims to increase the visibility of the stories of women who play important social roles in their communities. Their names are many: midwives, faith healers, herbalists, shamans and community leaders. Here, we honor their stories.

They are all over the world, in the roots of all peoples and cultures…

Film Synopsis

Mayara grew up in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil and Latin America.  She was a teenager surrounded by millions of people, technology, and everything the modern world can offer. But she still felt empty.  In search for Brazil's roots, she traveled to indigenous, quilombola (communities founded in 19th century by runaway slaves), and rural communities.  She was searching for women who could answer her questions. She found them. She calls them Women of Earth.
