An archeologist, immersed in colonial-era myths, travels to the last remaining cave dwellings interviewing the goatherds who live there as part of his quest to discover the remains of the original indigenous inhabitants of this land. The archeological experience reveals the complex map of power that is used to construct the historical discourse.

Silvia Navarro is a sociologist and visual artist. Her work explores the discursive layers that show the image as a reflection of the power discourse construction within the historiographic narration. With Miguel G. Morales, she co-directed the short films Esclavos sin ser esclavos and Juana.
Miguel G. Morales’ work lies at the periphery of non-fiction, which are strongly essayistic and research-oriented. He alternates these projects with video art initiatives, and regularly collaborates with visual and performance artists. As a filmmaker, he has directed several documentary films, such as Aislados and Taro. El eco de Manrique.
