El Misterio De Las Lagunas

In the isolated mountains and valleys of the Venezuelan Andes, life has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. This film is a journey through these mysterious places where through festivals, songs, dances and stories, peasants share the traditions they have preserved from one generation to the other. Indigenous and Spanish folklore merge to create a culture that’s magical and joyous, even as the lives of these villagers are austere and full of toil.
