    Documentary

    ELDORADO XXI is a haunting and mysterious ethnographic reality cut-up. Set in the highest settlement in the world, La Rinconada y Cerro Lunar (5500m), in the Peruvian Andes; an illusion leads men to self destruction, moved by the same interests, dealt with the same tools and means in contemporaneity as it has been dealt in the ancient times.

    I'm attracted by a series of things related to the ends of the earth, exiled places, margins.
