Mexico - mariachis, marimbas and vivid skeletons. In the urban hideouts of this city little creatures come to life. These are digitally composed with collected waste from the streets and typical local products. The clatter of the limbs of these creatures interacts with the soundscapes of Mexico City.
The protagonists of this animated film are the wastes from every corner of Mexico City that come to life with soulful swag. Thanks to the photo roman and computer graphics used in this film merrily experimenting with Mexican music and sound effects, you may feel as if you knew everything about Mexican witchcraft, culture, way of life, and even Mexican people’s deepest secrets even if you have never met a Mexican before.
