Woven Lives is Carolyn Kallenborn’s documentary to be shown on June 2nd at the Textile Museum of Oaxaca as part of the 6th WTA International Textile Biennial. The weavers who are in it will be seeing it for the first time, which will prove to be a very special moment for them.
Carolyn spent a considerable amount of time in Oaxaca working with these weavers, and has recently finished this wonderful documentary.
I was lucky to attend her witty and fascinating lecture last September at the Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center, where she talked about some of her experiences getting acquainted in Oaxaca, and showed photographs of her community work, as well as the video below.
After the Oaxaca premiere, Carolyn will be showing the film on June 10th at the SDA Conference in Minneapolis.
