A short film by Brenda Zapeta, Yenifer López and Nicolasa García made during the 2011 Voces de Cambio Visual Storytelling Workshop, an 8-week video production course held in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.
Vida Verde looks at the importance of recycling for the environment. In the video Brenda, Yenifer and Nico speak with an organization that makes toys out of pretty much anything they can find, a school that is using bottles filled with trash to make walls, a glassworks that uses recycled glass, and a teacher who teaches her students the importance of composting.
Voces de Cambio (Voices of Change) is an after-school program for young women with the goal of creating a supportive and creative environment where our participants can begin to challenge deeply ingrained and destructive social norms that preclude them from contributing to the development of a just and democratic society.
