Alan Stivelman | Argentina/Peru/Bolivia | 2014 | 85mins

What happens when the filmmaker becomes the subject of the film and the subject becomes the filmmaker? Humano is a unique cinema journey that twists together ancient wisdom and modern existential curiosity.

A young filmmaker armed with a camera and a notebook filled with questions sets off on a journey to the Andes to explore the deepest caverns of his subconscious and the origins of humanity. First he must learn to be human and through the eyes of Placido, an Andean Paqo (Wisdom Keeper) we are introduced to the heart of Andean cosmology. Rituals, initiations and mind-blowing challenges unfurl before him as doorways to breaking and broadening his consciousness. With the camera now on him, Alan is taken on an introspective journey as has never been documented before.

Sinopsis | Alan tiene veinticinco años y no encuentra las razones de su existencia, el porqué de la vida. Una cámara y un cuaderno escrito con muchas preguntas, son lo único que necesita para emprender un viaje a las montañas andinas. Hacia lo más profundo del inconsciente. A través de la mirada de Plácido, un paqo (“sacerdote”) andino, se le revelará la existencia de un mundo invisible que convive a diario con el visible. Alan desea descubrir el origen del ser Humano en la Tierra, pero para ello antes es necesario que aprenda a ser Humano. Rituales, iniciaciones y nuevas estructuras le serán dadas como “llaves”, para que pueda romper y ampliar su consciencia. Junto a Plácido, emprenderá uno de los viajes más introspectivos que alguna vez se hayan registrado.
