MEXICO , Canada | 70 minutes | 2018

Off the shores of Oaxaca, the past rumbles just below the ocean’s surface. The characters of the Faust legend mingle with the locals in a setting that’s both ancient and contemporary as they seek to subdue nature. Words and images intertwine in Andrea Bussmann’s debut feature, telling stories of telepathy, metamorphosis, and the devil of colonization through an intensely poetic lens that marries truth and fiction, the visible and the invisible, the ordinary and the magical.
