The tumba and the papalote

"The tomb and the kite"



Aileen REYES

- STEP : in development


A child, an ossuary keeper, and an old seer are united by death and the ghosts that death has left them. The child will find the embrace of an old woman, the guardian will fall into a dream of love and melancholy, while the old woman, accompanied by the light of her deities, will face the spirit of her son buried years ago. A glass of clear water and a mass are the final pact of peace.
