Ongoing project
Directed by Elise Florenty & Marcel Türkowsky

As the lockdown in Mexico City intensifies, a group of Mexican and Japanese friends
find themselves mysteriously entangled into the hi/story of the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán
valley that hosts the biggest cactus forest of the world. This hostile, "thorny",
almost forbidden zone reveals itself as a world wide theatre for illegal plant
trafficking as well as various spiritual experiments. Nighttime, dream and death
slowly wrap the protagonists into a spiral of transformations only to maybe bring
them back to their own isolation...
A meditation upon the globalised exploitation of natural resources and the new
curses it brings about.
