Oro Verde is a mytho-documentary that traces the history of the revolution of the P'urhépecha people in the central region of the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The project focuses on a social revolt initiated by women who succeeded in driving out of Cherán one of the many violent drug cartels that are taking over Mexico's avocado industry. Based on the claim to self-determination of indigenous peoples who place environmental protection at the center of their political organization, Ritual Inhabitual elaborated a narrative of the uprising by focusing on a ritual that the P'urhépecha maintain with the wild bees of the forests they protect.
