Caleu Está Soñando
(The Thread at Play)

Edited by Cecilia Vicuña and Geoffrey Jones
Camera and Sound by Claudio Mercado
Touchstone Center Publications, 1999

In this videotape, poet and artist Cecilia Vicuña, documents her workshops with children in a small mountain village school in Chilé, bringing them into a metaphoric celebration of their inward thoughts and playfulness. The result is a moving insight into the power of poetic thought to link children to the roots of their indigenous culture. An interview of Ms.Vicuña with Richard Lewis provides valuable information about the overall process of the workshops – and the eventual impact they had on both children and the community at large.
