(2000, 75 min.) 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 unusual tolerance of alternative gender roles. The community featured here was one of the hardest hit during the recent Mexican earthquakes. The screening will benefit the community.
