Gotik Aztéques

Long after a bloody Aztec invasion of Gothic Europe, A young European Aztec girl, rebelling against her Aztec ancestry, becomes a newly initiated member of the last cult of the Devil. Gotik Aztéques is a mix of live-action & animation, commissioned by the French publishing collective Le Dernier Cri as a segment for their animation compilation "Les Religions Sauvage". I am currently finishing post-production on an extended version.
A sneak preview of Gotik Aztéques was seen at The Archeology of Imaginary Communication Devices conference in March, 2004 at the Debaile Center in Amsterdam.
