Mopampa: por ti. How a native chili pepper gives freedom to women and land in Mexico

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

This ‘ecofeminist’ story is the hard and heartwarming work of Dalì, the young, next generation leader of the Tlaola Serrano Chili Pepper Slow Food Presidia.

In the documentary we follow Maria Lucìa, an indigenous Nahua woman, who created a social economy company, selling sauces of Serrano pepper. A product native to the Tlaola Puebla region, located in the northern highlands of Mexico. Through Mopampa, which means for you’ in native Nahua language, they seek to create an alternative working route, so women in the area can gain greater economic freedom and reduce domestic violence. You will become aware of the conditions of vulnerability and the struggle of low payment to women, indigenous discrimination and the right of access to land, as well as its conservation.

A documentary of Mariana Lariza Barocio Hernández, Natalia Itzel Ramírez Aguilera.

Speaker: Dalì Nolasco Cruz (México)
