An animation in Stop Motion with clay, starring the “Pacha”, our Mother Earth, also known as the Pachamama, part of an ancestral belief strongly rooted in the peoples of the Andes. In times of abundance of fruit permission is requested to dig up the devil, who is responsible of sweeping away all the pains and spread joy and devilish tricks throughout the time of Carnaval. Handmade with clay from the soils of Quebrada de Humahuaca, North of Argentina. A very challenging material in the process of the animation since it has a fast drying on the set of filming, generating unique and unrepeatable shots.
