LAS TURAS
Directed by: Ana Cristina Henríquez
Length: 15'


Synopsis

LAS TURAS is, essentially, an indigenous agrarian rite which has survived by keeping its sense of fecundity, tribute and gratitude to Mother Earth and of invocation for the favours of powerful spirits who are responsible for good harvests. It is also one of the few traditions that remains faithful to its indigenous origin within the creole adaptation of its external elements, which is the main explanation of the remarkable magical sense it still maintains.
