Dir. Leroy Mcloughlin (Belize, 2019) 22 min / Rated G
A young girl, named Tecuani, encounters the mythical ‘Tata Duende’ in a cave she discovered in the forest. The Duende proceeds to tell her the real, but long forgotten, history of her people. She discovers her ancestors, once part of a great ancient civilisation fell victim to a greedy few who destroyed their only islands life-supporting forests, rivers and reefs. As their people descended into starvation and conflict the greedy few denied responsibility instead pointing the finger of blame at the majestic yet voiceless jaguar. A small group managed to escape across the stormy Arawak Sea hopelessly seeking a new beginning on an island which exists only in stories. Join us to discover how their fate and Tecuani’s are entwined!
