La flor de cempazuchitl es uno de los principales símbolos de la celebración más importante de nuestro pueblo: el Día de Muertos en San Blas Atempa, situado en la región del Istmo de Tehuantepec, México. Ahí­ surge este relato visual que narra el viaje de la hermosa flor, desde su recolección y su venta hasta llegar a las casas para adornar los altares e iluminar los cementerios. Guie’Bigua nos permite disfrutar de una visión fresca desde adentro de la misma comunidad.
