Dir. Miguel Sabido, 90 min, Nahua and Spanish with English subtitles.
An exciting story of passion, drama, and the struggle between good and evil. The conflict escalates when a Mexican Catholic priest accuses a Nahua community of blasphemy due to their depiction of the Archangel Michael and Saint Lucifer in an ancient theatrical play. Religion and politics clash in a film which provides a fascinating insight into a culture which existed in Mexico centuries before the arrival of the Spaniards.
