The idea of the film is, based on the iconography’s Mochica’s vases, recreate a ceremonial sacrifice of this prehispanic culture.
We start from two typicals Mochica’s vases which contain two groups of warriors with different attributes (exemple: the shields are circulars for a group and square for the other).
The two groups of warriors meet each other and begin to fight.
The vanquished are stripped and maltreated. Then they are brought in procession up instead of preparing the sacrifice
Then comes the sacrifice. The throat of a prisoner is cut off and blood is collected in a cup ..
This cup pass from hand to hand until the main character who drinks blood.
