The Woman Who Outshone the Sun
By Rosalma Zubizarreta, Harriet Rohmer, David Schecter
Based on a poem by Alejandro Cruz Martinez

The Woman Who Outshone the Sun is a Latin American folk tale. It tells the story of a mysterious and radiant woman arriving in a small village. Themes of judgement, discrimination and the true meaning of forgiveness are woven against the backdrop of nature, land and the precarity of these natural gifts.
