Production Notes – Camera

Hanging around the village fiesta all day. At one point falling asleep in the atrium of the church (I was not the only one). All I did was to point the camera at all the interesting things that were going on all around..

Filmmaker Biography

Having lived in Tecalpulco for many years, I love the fiestas and traditional observations.

Tecalpulco’s saint, Padre Jesus, is regarded as being extraordinarily miraculous.

Blind men led by children come from far, on the day of the powerful saint.
