Synopsis

In Northern Yucatan, Mexico, natural sinkholes called 'cenotes' constituted the sole water source for Mayans not living near a river or lake. Some cenotes were used for ritual sacrifices, and the Mayans believed that these holy springs connected this world to the afterlife. The past and present of those living around the cenotes coalesce in this mysterious place. Long-lost memories echo in hallucinatory turquoise underwater footage, an entrancing game of light and dark. Swimming in these sinkholes, director Oda Kaori encounters intriguing shapes and beams of light, the water heaves, drops fall like razor blades.

Sinopsis

U sjevernom Jukatanu u Meksiku, prirodno formirane vrtače, zvane “cenote” bile su jedinim izvorom vode za Maje koje nisu živjele u blizini rijeke ili jezera. Neke cenote korištene su za obredna žrtvovanja, a Maje su vjerovale da ovi sveti izvori predstavljaju sponu sa onozemaljskim životom. Prošlost i sadašnjost onih koji žive u blizini cenota, prepliću se na ovom misterioznom mjestu. Davno izgubljene uspomene odzvanjaju u snimcima opijajuće tirkizne podvodne sredine, kao očaravjuća igra svjetlosti i mraka. Plivajući u ovim vrtačama, režiserka Oda Kaori spoznaje misteriozne oblike i snopove svjetlosti, dizanje vode, kapi koje padaju poput oštrica noža.
