In this half-hour documentary, two California artists use their art to connect to their Mexican roots, especially their indigenous heritage: Mayan (and Olmec) for the one, Aztec for the other. The documentary is fully bilingual (Spanish and English)

Quetzalcóatl and the Magic Flute of Fire opens with a one-minute review of the 3,000+ years of Mexican civilization, then moves on to the two featured artists: Ernesto Hernández Olmos and Rubén Guzmán. Both are from Mexico but now live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Both have exhibited in several venues, taught youth, and participated actively in community celebrations. Olmos is a multi-media artist. Guzmán specializes in cartonería, an art derived from paper maché. Guzmán's section is hosted by artist Hershell West; Olmos is alone in his part.
