to watch: Pachamama

Pachamama looks utterly beautiful and unlike anything aimed at children today. And while it’s not necessarily evident from the trailer, Antin says he hopes to promote an ecological message with the film. Overall, the movie seems to take a complex history – Andean villagers struggling under the dominion of the Incas, who themselves are on the verge of being pillaged Spanish conquistadores – and makes it accessible and entertaining to a young audience.

putting this here so I remember to check it out on Netflix. Writer is of Peruvian heritage.
