The Santa Fe International Folk Art Market gets underway next weekend. In addition to the usual (not to mention unusual) crowd of artists from around the globe, the market will play host to the U.S. premiere of a brand-new documentary from New Mexico filmmaker Mary Lance. Her film Blue Alchemy: Stories of Indigo will screen Wednesday, July 6, at 7 p.m. at the Lensic (211 W. San Francisco). Lance traveled all over the world—from India to Japan to Bangladesh to Nigeria to Mexico to El Salvador—to chart the history of a single color. Lance was not only able to trace the ancient roots of the distinctive shade, she found modern artisans who are reaching into their own cultural traditions to revive indigo production and uses for sustainable development. Starting off the evening is a performance by acclaimed Japanese flutist Kojiro Umezaki, a member of Yo-Yo Ma’s group, the Silk Road Ensemble. Tickets can be purchased at the Lensic box office or online at ticketssantafe.org. Prices are $10 to $20. A special, limited number of $75 passes includes an invitation to a pre-screening party at the Coyote Cantina from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. as well as preferred seating at the Lensic.
