Returning to Strength is a remarkable story of empowerment in a rural village in the south of Mexico. Faced with relentless hardship, frequent illness and a toxic environment, young women in Tlamacazapa are gradually transforming their lives – they are becoming stronger, more resilient, able to respond with greater creativity and assurance to life’s demands. They work with Atzin, a civil association operating in the village since 1997. Filmed during the covid-19 pandemic, Returning to Strength is a story for us all as we struggle globally to regain social and ecological balance.
