Los Santeros (The Saint Carvers)

Santeros, Los (The Saint Carvers)

"Highly Recommended. Santeros, those who earnestly whittle and fashion likenesses of the beatific Virgin Mary or the pastoral St. Ysidro from blocks of cottonwood, are shown to carry on an honorable tradition from the late 18th century. Tracing this history, this production inter-cuts views of Santos, carved and painted saints' figures, and of contemporary Santeros at work. An informative introduction to this little-documented aspect of regional American folk art." -Booklist
This classic program is a beautiful study of a traditional skill passed on for generations among the Hispanic (Chicano/Chicana - Latino/Latina) culture. Here we see inter-cut views of Santos, carved and painted saints' figures, and of contemporary Santeros at work, providing an informative introduction to this little-documented aspect of regional American folk art. 81/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
