Event description

Description

Join the filmmakers for a private sacreening of Agave: the Spirit of a Nation. One special edition bottle of Mezcal Vago Elote made by Aquilino Garcia Lopes will be raffled of to one lucky viewer.

This expressive documentary explores the phenomenon of the fastest trending alcohol spirit in the world, Tequila and Mezcal. This journey takes us to the world’s most bio-diverse landscape of the agave plant, Mexico; here families have been passing down the tradition of distilling agave for generations, at times, even clandestinely. From the alluring red highlands of Jalisco to the rugged mountains of Oaxaca the film follows three producers - Carlos, Graciela, and Aquilino in this burgeoning renaissance. From a bootstrap ambition to carrying on a father’s legacy, their successes and sacrifices unfurl in this interweaved story. Discover how one delicate plant can carry the weight of a nation and the people trying to protect it for the future. `
