GOSHEN is a documentary feature sharing the remarkable story of the indigenous Tarahumara tribe who are renowned for their incredible long distance running endurance. Living in the remote depths of the Copper Canyons, Mexico, the Tarahumara have managed to prevent the top 3 modern diseases - type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. GOSHEN unveils the mystery of how to establish healthy, sustainable communities that can survive, even thrive, despite the global increases in famine and diseases. The film follows an unbelievable journey into the lives of the Tarahumara, striving to conserve their sacred seed ancestry and preserve their traditional culture. Entertaining and engaging, GOSHEN will inspire you to be part of an ancient yet innovative movement dedicated to safeguarding our world’s health and future.
