We are very proud to announce the upcoming screening in London of Ik’pulan Vaichil (Dark Dream) a short film directed and photography by Pau Pascual Galbis. The film it is included as part of the programme of CORTOMETRAJES, 7 Brit Es Short Films, a Shorts On Tap‘s screening in collaboration with Brit Es Magazine.
The programme is made up of a special selection of 7 short films which offer an eclectic point of view on the reality of today across different genres. As well as watching the films themselves, the audience will get the chance to talk to the directors and there will also be a number of special guests.
Brit Es’s concept defines the people, projects, trends and cultural offerings in the UK that have a Spanish / Latin quality or origin but are also influenced by and inseparable from British culture. Both platforms has been working together to create this event and choose an outstanding selection of seven ‘Brit Es’ short films.
Ik’pulan Vaichil (Dark Dream) with Nikka’s dark electronic music is inspired by Tzotzil Mayan myth in Chiapas (Mexico) that i’kal the black bird looking anthropomorphic spectres attack people in their nightmares and also kidnap women. After the arrival of Catholicism these figures became pukuj; perverse and evil devils. According to the anthropologist Calixta G. Holmes, when a Tzotzil person dreams or has nightmare, wayjel -animal soul of this person leaves his body to wander, but when chu’lel his other eternal soul is not present, he could be attacked by ‘ik’al or by their negative effects like jealousy, envy, and hatred which cause anxiety, depression, illness and even death to the victim. In relation to the video Ik’pulan vaichil, the mixed ethno-cultural mise en scène such as a syncretic religious act is practiced in abandoned industrial spaces is allude to the current controversy context of political situation, racial division and class society in Chiapas.
