“blue alchemy: stories of indigo”


Congratulations to Mary Lance on the completion of her new film: “Blue Alchemy: Stories of Indigo.”  The first screening will be at the International Symposium on Natural Dyes in La Rochelle, France, during the week of April 25.  Mary will also be showing the film to benefit the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market July 6th at 7:00pm at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe.  Tickets will be on sale soon.  If you are going to be in Santa Fe in July, help fill the theatre to see a great film and support a great cause.

We first heard of Mary and her indigo film from Ruby Ghuznavi in Dhaka, one of the most eloquent and tireless proponents of natural dyes in the world.  We’ve since watched several of Mary’s other documentaries and admire her work.  Can’t wait to see “Blue Alchemy” next.  According to Mary there will be  a film website coming in late May or June.
