Weaving Worlds, from director Bennie Klain (Diné), presents a compelling and intimate portrait of Navajo weavers as they work to preserve the cultural integrity of their weaving traditions in the face of an increasing globalization. The film examines the connections of the weavers to the sheep, wool, water and land; their often strained relationship with reservation traders; the commodification of their art; and their struggles to protect their intellectual property. In English and Navajo, w/ English subtitles. (TricksterFilms LLC and Independent Television Service in association with Native American Public Telecommunications, 2008, 57 min.).
An audience discussion will follow the film.
