With Rosario Quispe, Warmis

How can one create a future when there is none? That’s the question Nobel Peace Prize nominee Rosario Quispe, a Kolla woman, asked herself in 1994 when the mines were closing, and the people of Northern Argentina were left without work, forcing them to migrate to the south. This impactful documentary pays tribute to Rosario, who, through a micro-credit system that was later recognized by Harvard University, established an enterprise in Abra Pampa that supports thousands of families from the aboriginal communities of the region.

Together, in alliance with national entrepreneurs, they market 95% of the llama wool fiber produced in Puna, Argentina, to Europe and Latin America. Today, Warmi Sayasungo supports more than 6,000 families from 80 native communities.


Persistant Woman, the third film by Soledad San Julián, a portrait of the warmi weavers of the Puna, premiered to a full house and received a standing ovation at the Las Alturas Int'lFilm Festival.” – José Loschi, Infobae

Notes on Film

“I remember Rosario’s first words when I met her: ‘You have to know that what is easy has already been done, what is difficult, if you put your effort into it, you will accomplish, and that the impossible will just take a little longer, but you will achieve it…’ Those words, like a prayer, marked the path I decided to embark on so many years ago.”

– Soledad San Julián, Director
