I got to go to Juchitán

As an examination of matriarchal structures in Mexico, I GOT TO GO TO JUCHITÁN originates from the desire to portray the reality of a society structured differently to the accepted norm. 
The film observes three women in their everyday life, Adelina 70, Martina 40 and Adela 20. They work in a bistro at the famous market that is the economic heart of the town of Juchitán, Oaxaca, Mexico. The women cook, trade, look after their elders, get lovesick and know how to party. Fish, meat and corn from the region are delivered by the men, who support these loud and cheerfully dressed women who have the say. But capitalism and machismo are also ever present in Juchitán, making for a field of tension.
