The Sacramental of Elephants

Through the wind, from the countryside to the city, the Latin American poetry is expressed, through this feature film, which tells us the story of Adán, a young man, who, full of confusion, returns to the town of his great-grandparents to charge revenge for the death of his mother, at the hands of a farmer from that place.

This will take him back to the nothingness of his being, and full of fears and doubts, he will find people along the way who, like him, are constantly defending their place on earth ...

But one night, through a dream, get to visit a woman who lives in another space and another time, and she will shelter him under her pillow, to bless him as a mother who carries in her womb the miracle of a new consciousness.

As a way of seeing human madness, Emiliano Martínez lets us see between the lines that men and women have never stopped to look at each other as we really are.
