A young man seeks extremes. Alone in the Mexican desert, he takes mescaline which he extracts from Peyote cactuses, following a centuries-old, Indian tradition.“My films always centre on a lack of communication, on death and solitude,” says director Matías Meyer, “and on the desert.” Using an HD hand camera, Meyer has filmed a portrait of a man confronted with himself and an overwhelming landscape. Inspired by the works of Abbas Kiarostami, the film works almost entirely without dialogue.
