Stunning work by directing duo Ed Braun and Justo Dell Acqua (aka WACHO) from Argentina. Created for Paris-based producer Ateph Elidja, “Burn October” tells the story of life, death and grief in a small Polish settlement in the Argentinean jungle. As Braun shared with us:

“Misiones Province is located in the far north of Argentina, inside the Amazonian jungle. It shares borders with Brazil and Paraguay. All through the second half of the 20th century a lot of Ukrainian, Polish and German families arrived to this area creating colonies and small villages scattered through the jungle, area of the aborigine guarani tribe. In this condition they generated a hybrid culture. We wanted to explore this very improbable culture, especially the idea of death and after-life.”
