Our short At Her Fingertips was featured at the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival 2019. It was included in the Around the World Program, and nominated for Best Documentary.

The film illuminates the mastery of Celendín's straw hats, and the women who seek equity for the future of their craft. 

This is just one of many more stories we have to tell, and are actively seeking postproduction finishing funds to sustainably complete the feature documentary. This short is an exposure tool to help us do just that.
