Description Technical Specs
Juan, an older man of Mayan ancestry, falls victim to a mining accident and embarks on a hallucinatory journey in a Yucatan underground cave world. He is guided along by Vera, an attenuated blue spirit. Through an entirely unique series of visual transformations, Juan is catapulted at once into the realm of Mayan mysticism and visions of the future. Overflowing with a pantheon of religious imagery through exquisite cinematography and seamlessly integrated computer animation, this visionary film opens up a world of narrative forms for generations of filmmakers to come. In Mayan and Spanish with English subtitles.
