Aequador is an alternative history built as a travel account without words: an equatorial dystopia evoking the excesses of a progressist and modernist dream in Latin America during the twentieth century. We imagined a bygone era where an extremist ideology would tried to conquer the Amazon territory. The film describes in a composite and voluntarily fragmented way this parallel present, where fake ruins and relics of utopian architecture in 3D coexists with vernacular constructions and daily lifes of human beings.
