Wirikuta is a sacred desert in Mexico. The indigenous WixÃ¡rika undertake a pilgrimage to this location, as one of their most important rituals. They consider it the navel of the world.
This ancestral culture and its natural environment are now under threat because mining concessions for open-air mining have been granted to companies to exploit gold and silver.
WixÃ¡rica communities gather here, in ceremony against the mining concessions, in defence of the land.
In this documentary we listen to their voices and accompany the ceremony as different ancestral rituals are celebrated, and the world is reinterpreted through ceremony.
