This documentary presents a more complete history of the Mata Ortiz pottery tradition.
In this documentary several new voices articulate a more accurate picture of the early years.
The story from Spencer MacCallum about Mata Ortiz focuses on only one person; it has become clear that many people created the contemporary pottery movement.
The Mata Ortiz pottery tradition emerged as a group effort, not from a single man’s inspiration. This film shows that many people were included. The traditional out-of-date narrative excluded many.
Now, what was left out of the story is part of the story.
