Documental Color Amazonia (2013).
In recent years, together with a group of friends, we have wandered around the Colombian Amazon in search of color.
With the ancestral knowledge of Huitoto and Tikuna communities as guides, we identified eleven botanical species and the processes of alchemy that allow for the use of their pigments in artisanal ways on natural fibers such as fique, cotton and paper.
Near the city of Leticia, we installed a rustic workshop to explore and understand these manual processes in direct and close relationship with the environment: an encounter between basic human nature that knows how to transform, and botanical nature, which provides amazing possibilitie.
Color Amazonia is the testimony of this elemental search where color is a pretext to exalt the immense value of a jungle that is disappearing.
