Mexico 2013, 28′ Spanish with Italian subtitles

The prayers have been lost in the town of Tenejapa, there’s no one who asks for life, illnesses and problems have arrived. The ancient ones, those of the “costumbre”, are no longer accounted for. Alonso Sántis López is one of the few traditional prayer men who have been marked by service to the town. His work consists of asking the gods for the “bankilales” (elder brothers) and watching over the lives of the people. During the carnival, a ritual in which the new year begins and with it another period of responsibility of the “costumbre”, we meet “El Nail.”
