Abstract exploration into Mayan (and our own) subconsciousness
7 February 2021 | by quercus90See all my reviews

Exploration of cenote is gorgeous yet frightening cinematic experience. Intense rays of sunlight and star-like particles drifting in the water creates continuously changing geometric abstraction on the screen that put me in hypnosis. The only moments that woke me up from this dimension between our and the other world are when a familiar fish occasionally drift across the sub-aquatic terrain.
