Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.17.16] Mexico adventure



1519. A trio of Spanish conquistadors, with the help of a handful of locals, march 5,400 meters to the top of Popocatepetl, one of Mexico's great volcanoes. They're on an important mission for Hernán Cortés (the conquistadore who led the expedition which ultimately led to the fall of the Aztec empire) but it seems like a doomed mission which is likely to cost them their minds. Or even their lives.


Rubén Imaz Castro and Yulene Olaizola's Epitaph has played a couple of festivals but remained largely under the radar though I can't quite figure out why since it looks like outstanding arthouse fodder. The trailer suggests existential struggles must be overcome by the conquistadors, there's the social issues embedded in the story and more than that, this looks gorgeous, almost like a lost 70s drama.



Epitaph does not currently have a distributor but look for this little gem making the festival rounds.




Recommended Release: Jauja
