Film Screening

Virtual Film Screening: "Los Médicos de la Montaña"

Join Holocaust Museum Houston in celebration of Indigenous Heritage Month as we feature artists, scholars, and films that pay tribute to Indigenous Peoples' ancestry and traditions worldwide. 

Film Synopsis:
During the war in Guatemala, the people who took refuge in the mountain created a health system as a way of survival in which they combined modern medicine with ancestral medicine. Nowadays, the Primavera del Ixcán Community continues to be inspired by this organizational health learning in the face of an almost total absence of the State in the region.
