In a wakeful night, a man turns to console his wife: ‘Not all are asleep in the night of the forefathers’. Thus begins the tales of three indio (indigenous people): a bellringer, a revolutionary and an actor, during the revolt against the Spanish. The mostly monochrome form returns to cinema’s early days of actuality, but there is also an imaginative side in cosmic imagery and the score by Khavn de la Cruz.
