The Peruvian craft-work called 'Retablo Ayacuchano' is a rectangular wooden box containing small sculptures of people and the environment in which they live, work, and celebrate. The filmmaker traveled to Peru and conducted interviews with retablo artists known as 'retablistas'. The result became a 20-minute documentary. This portrait of four artists reveals how they share their passion and inspirations in the creation of their retablos. In this video documentary, the retablistas open the doors of their houses, workshops, and hearts to reveal their memories, commitment, and love for their community, art, and life. The retablo project includes both this video documentary and the animation 'Retablo', inspired by this Peruvian craft-work.
