This documentary essay reflects the creation of the myth of the Guanches, indigenous inhabitants of the Canary Islands, and the history of Spanish domination over the territory up to the Franco dictatorship. Between the 1940s and 70s, anthropologist Luis Diego Cuscoy tracked down Guanche cultural remains and documented it on film and tape. Complemented by further material, these recordings prove to be an effective instrument for a reinterpretation of the present. The depth of the editing work generates a compelling effect, shifting between legend and history, imagination and testimony, representation and spontaneity. Grand Prize for the best film at IndieLisboa Festival 2019.
