Altiplano sees Brosens and Woodworth take a bold and unpredictable approach in calling attention to an environmental catastrophe.
If a film may do penance for its narrative faults with the grace of its visuals, Altiplano does so in dramatic fashion.
Filled with mythic style and magical thinking, Altiplano feeds the eyes but gives rations to the mind.
If Ingmar Bergman had made a Peruvian message movie, it might look something like this slow-building, panoramic meditation about the effects of mercury contamination in the Andes mountains.
Co-collaborators Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth still cheapen their ethnological lyricism by over-stylizing the venture as if it were a Benetton ad by Alejandro Jodorowsky-lite.
Writer-directors Peter Brosens and Jessica Hope Woodworth are less interested in telling a conventional story than in dispensing poetic impressions. And, boy, do they.
Hypnotically braids strands of Incan mythology, Catholic voodoo, and campesino outrage to style a sympathetic outsider's portrait of South American mysticism.
A provocative and absorbing drama filled with haunting, powerful imagery.
Overplays blindness metaphors and foreign issues, but relishes the passionate theatricality of folk rituals, with some surrealism, to combine the poetic with the political.
There exists within the eloquent imagery, the seed of a true potent anti-colonialist story. But ironically smothered in neo-colonialist European musical and religious cultural elements, while muting corporate violence and misinterpreting Third World rage.
