This film might just be the epitome of joy. Shot in a remote town on the side of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, the experience of Feliciano Pop took me by surprise. I realized that shooting people, with a camera that is, in a foreign language that you don’t understand encourages an ability to listen beyond the words.
I didn’t actually need to know what he was saying. There was something else. Something far more powerful. My hope is that you too can see it. Even though, ironically, it seems that what we are really looking for is invisible to the eye alone.
What if there is a language beyond our simple understanding of words.
