Amidst the Stones Hypnotized by the Moon

Ruben Guzman

This video documents a day in the life of pastoral nomad shepherds of the Andean plateau, a lifestyle that is rapidly becoming extinct.

"And when the last of the descendants of these stubborn people had gone, the land will continue to be the same, stones hypnotized by the moon, dust shuddered by the wind."
- Héctor Tizón
