L O S S A G R A D O S (THE SACRED)
"Los Sagrados" intimately portrays the humble existence of a Mapuche indigenous family in southern Chile.
Elsa and Antonio (two Mapuche elders), live with their granddaughter in a modest house. The precarity of the terminally ill Antonio, leads his wife Elsa to seek the help of a Mapuche shaman, a Machi. Through an ancient ritual, the Machi tries to heal him from the unknown disease that will eventually cause his death. Antonio's departure plunges Elsa into a state of despair and profound silence. Her only recourse is to sit and wait to meet her loved one again.
