Inspired by chronicles of the numerous geographers, naturalists, and missionaries that travelled through Venezuelan Guyana from the 17th to the 19th Centuries, the film’s narrator provides drawings, maps, and illustrations that unfold an adventurous epic of natural history. The mineral and mystical substratum of the earth comes in and out of focus through the grains of the 16mm material in which Morichales is shot. Like a fragile residue of an extraction, the filmic images are traces of the primordial light of Nature, gold that slips from our grasp before our very eyes.
