Two indigenous Eyeri twins embark on the Pinta, returning to Europe after Columbus’ first voyage, with a mission: to inseminate the land of foreigners. The plan is simple: one must die and become seed, and the other cultivate it.
As a Venezuelan immigrant I feel a responsibility to generate new historical narratives and to inhabit them with a change of point of view, never before treated in cinema, of the first American Indians to discover Europe. I want to portray the Eyerís as active subjects who decided to explore a new territory, taking advantage of the technology of foreign ships.
