Filmed in the Andes, ALTIPLANO is set in a geological universe of ancestral salt flats, volcanic deserts and coloured lakes. This is the heart of a natural ecosystem threatened by a century of saltpeter and nitrate mining and recent geothermic exploitation. ALTIPLANO reveals this ancient land as a vibrating Ektachrome landscape, transformed through in-camera editing, complex 16mm pixelation and superimposition techniques into spaces that exist in a multitude of times simultaneously.
