ABOUT THE FILM

The animated film shows 61 stories about superstition, religious and scientific beliefs, illustrated through ink-on-paper drawings, that were animated in a minimalist way.
Between December 2009 and February 2010 Susana Perrottet interviewed 11 randomly chosen persons she met in Lima.
The soundtrack to the film is build out of little exerpts taken out of the interview recordings.
The ambient sound and melody of the voices added to the drawings, draw a landscape where the division line between fantasy and reality is blurred.

i am peruvian and the film made me think about some of the stories I heard when I was younger. My parents used to tell me that they were falacies invented by people with no education who did not know anything and clang to legends told by their ancestors. After viewing the film, I am thinking that maybe my parents were wrong, and that there is more to it that we are not willing to understand because we are really afraid of what we may find.
