Children from the Andes

Animated video clip in stop motion with mud which tells the story about the Children from the "Llullaillaco Volcano". This volcano is one of the highest in the Andean region. Formerly the children were offered to the mountain in an Inca ritual that established an order with the gods of nature. They were extracted from the top of the volcano in an expedition and their tombs disecrated. Today; children are exhibited in a museum in Salta; Argentina. The community from "El Tolar" believes that this desecration is one of the cause of the climate disorders they are suffering.
