Director Statement

“What happens to the human soul when the devil is loose?” is the question that aroused my amused mind during my first visit to the Carnival at Humahuaca, in the Northern State of Argentina, Jujuy.
It was there, in 1999, amid that mythical atmosphere where excesses abound, that the need of creating a story was born. Later on, I continued to work and wander about human values and the boundaries of our free will.
In 2008, the script participated in the "Unpublished Script" contest at the Havana Film Festival and in 2011; it was among 13 projects selected from 400 Latin American scripts for the "IX Course on Film Project Development" of the Carolina and Ibermedia Foundation of Madrid.
A Latin American road movie headed to the typical Humahuaca Carnival where this ancient festivity held by the native people, will change the life of couple and a child.
