Floating with Spirits

Juanita Onzaga


Culture & nature in extinction

A propos du project

In most Western cultures, death rituals have become simple and sad funerals. However, different cultures around the world still believe that death is not the end of life, but rather its continuation in a parallel world. The Mazatecs are convinced that our deceased are still present in our world, together with the other spirits of nature.
This cinematic and hybrid VR project follows 2 young indigenous sisters in the mystical mountains of Mexico. Together with their shamanic grandmother they explore the cosmogony of their ancestors as they prepare for the Day of the Dead. The spirits of nature and their ancestors surround them, transporting us to their magical world.
