Ayahuasca

"Ayahuasca" It is an audiovisual experience based on the story of Sofia del Aguila, whose testimony serves as inspiration for the artist Machuca Art, who pours his talent into a masterful mural, which summarizes the memories of an astral journey into the unknown, in the long-awaited search for answers. Art and mysticism merge in a personal, unique and very significant experience.

Ethereal and distant

"Ethereal and distant" is a contemplative audiovisual letter, made in the distance of the pandemic, which combines my images with the voice of my mother (La Mary) and her fervent passion for plants. It is a sensitive and very personal exhibition that took place at the Lambayeque Cinema Club and the Socio-Environmental Poetic Film Exhibition. This story is an extract from the conglomerate "Visions of a suspended time" presented in the final stage of our First Workshop for Peruvian Documentalists, carried out by the DOCLA School.
