The Ancient Ones

This video-clip was created for the song "Las Antiguas" of Inés Lolago. The song talks about the transmission of wisdom, creativity, love and respect for life that is transmitted from heart to heart and from one generation to the next, often through simple gestures full of meaning.
This song also recognizes and honors those who come before us and who are part of our lineage, not only of blood but also of Spirit: those invisible beings who are supporting us in this human journey, and of our responsibility to become worthy bearers of wisdom to be able to pass it on to future generations.
We have chosen the symbolism of the elements for their quality to represent the forces that govern us. Air: mind, Water: emotions, Fire: soul-spirit, Earth: body.
We use stop-motion animation because we would like that this video itself becomes a legacy for the next generations, and is accessible to children.
