The people of Santiago, a remote Mexican Village, are steeped in superstition and folklore. Ignorance and lack of hygiene cause disease and deaths among children, but the local medicine woman, fearing loss of control, foils efforts of government agencies to help the village folk.

Running Time: 65 Minutes


"This is a trademark Alexander Hammid production in which director Hebert Kline captures the ignorance and superstition that held sway over villagers in remote regions of Mexico in a touching manner. The film portrays the pathos and misery that were the order of the day in Santiago, through vivid reenactment of everyday events. The preference of local talent over a professional cast adds to the real-life quality of the film. One character that stands out in terms of performance is that of Pueblo, the son of a poor farmer. His enactment of joyful scenes as the family dines together and painful ones when he suffers from an ailment would make many professionals proud. Traditions and superstitions that were so much a part of life are depicted with sensitivity and insight that are characteristic of Hammidís movies. The challenges faced by government agencies in educating and treating villagers are quite clearly emphasized. Juanís long walk to the city for medical aid seems to offer a glimmer of hope that someday more village folk would accept modern medical assistance. Witness this rare and fascinating movie, which will leave you enchanted by the lives of Mexican villagers in the early years of the 20th century."
