How to Make it Rain/ B&W / 2016

The video is structured around the belief among Quechuas, that in order to make it rain sometimes it is necessary to go to a “pacheta” (high peak) to burn llama manure. The video is a poetic exploration of the ongoing struggle of “man” in the Andes confronting the forces of nature, but also the debris of a Spanish colonial system that acts as a reminder of an imposed instrument of control over the traditional form of living of indigenous groups in the Andes. “How to make it Rain” attempts to amalgamate a poetic narrative of daily life and the interrelation to nature, labor and memory.
