Ciudad Maya

Andrés Padilla Domene FR, 2016, 24', DCP
Special Mention

In the city of Merida, Mexico, a group of young urban Maya, operate mysterious technological instruments to do some sort of archaeological survey of a ruined site. However, the monuments they are scanning are not ancient, but modern replicas. The film walks on the limits between science fiction and documentary to deconstruct the imaginary around Maya culture and their identity today. All this simulation mechanism allows to analyse the way we document the present for the future and also to question the information we have from our past.
