In the city of Ayucucho, Peru, artists have been creating retablos or traditional religious alters for centuries. Visit several workshops and hear artisans speak about the history of the craft and its relevance today in this short documentary from Jungles in Paris.
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the world and selected by National Geographic editors.
