Midwives of Buenaventura (2009)
Daily work of a guild of midwives in Colombia's Pacific Coast. I enter the midwives’ association office in a humble neighborhood of Buenaventura, a city on Colombia’s Pacific coast. These midwives have a deep knowledge of natural medicine that forms part of their Afro-Colombian cultural tradition, they are part of the immaterial heritage of Colombia.
This work explore the ancestral African knowledge in black communities and the powerful role of the black woman in this tradition.
