Lands & Lores – The Holy Dirt

THE HOLY DIRT – In the small town of Chimayo, NM, there is a chapel with miraculous holy dirt, that, to the believers, has healing powers. Michael J. Trujillo is one of the residents of Chimayo and believes that the dirt helped him be a better person.

LANDS & LORES is a web-based documentary recorded on a road trip from Carbondale, IL to Berkeley, CA from October 7th to October 14th 2011. Photojournalist Bruno Maestrini and I drove a U-Haul truck on the historic Route 66, stopping in small towns and interviewing locals for folk tales.
