Fausto
Movie: Fausto(2018)[tt8794944] On the Oaxacan coast of Mexico, rumblings of previous times are never far from the surface. Tales of shapeshifting, telepathy and dealings with the Devil are embedded in the colonization and enslavement of the Americas. Characters from the Faust legend mingle with the inhabitants, while attempting to colonize and control nature through a seemingly never-ending building project. Through literature, myth and local entanglements, the frontier between reality and fiction, and the seen and unseen, no longer apply.

This is a mexican documentary. A series of myths and folklore become the reality of the people who live near to the coast in the state of Oaxaca.When I was a little girl we used to hear about a lot of magical stories which included the devil, angels, ghosts, strange creatures, demons, aliens and others. This documentary reminded me of how in Mexico we live in a culture full of folklore and myths. As young kids we used to believe in it all, we even felt part of a spiritual world and somehow connected with the stories. Growing up we left these stories behind, but they are still part of several communities.The documentary is full of shadows and darkness, giving the impression something is lurking in every corner. The sea and the sound of it, the sky, all the mystery there is in the images we see, makes the perfect setting for the several characters that are sharing their stories.I definitely recommended, although, if you are not into slow pacing images, then definitely it is not for you. Either way, I recommend you to give it a try and try for yourself.
