Women of Earth will take you on an unforgettable journey from the megalopolis of São Paulo, where some people have all the material things they wish to have, but still feel empty, to rural communities –deep in Brazil’s hinterland– where women are the pillars and guardians of ancestral knowledge. They are community leaders because they maintain a strong bond with the forces of Nature, and are as deeply rooted as the trees and the plants that they use to heal others. They are the guardians of natural balance because they apply their ancestral wisdom to help other women give birth. They oversee the whole cycle of life for all living beings in their communities and beyond. Beautifully filmed and masterfully written and directed, Women of Earth also makes a great contribution to the other task that these indigenous healers must comply with: passing on their ancestral knowledge to future generations of women.
