CENIZA VERDE (GREEN ASH) BY PABLO MAZZOLO

CENIZA VERDE tries to recover the mythical vestiges of the aboriginal culture Henia/Kamiare, annihilated by the Spanish conquest in the sixteenth century.

The Henia/Kamiares inhabited the current territory of the Sierras de Córdoba (Argentina) for at least 5000 years. After resisting the conquerors in the Charalqueta hill (named after the God of Joy), women, children, and the elderly committed suicide from the top of this hill in order to avoid being enslaved. This was the most massive collective suicide in the territory currently known as Argentina. The hill was renamed Colchiqui, (after the God of Fate and Sadness).

The film is a phantasmagoric trip within this geographical extension, taking it as a vast, green cemetery.
