Mounds, Myths and Meanings
by Anne Vera Veen
The experimental research film Mounds, Myths and Meanings explores an archaeological site in Nicaragua as a site for the negotiation of truths. A landscape in central Nicaragua covered in earthen mounts and scattered with stone statues, petroglyphs and sherds form the basis for archaeological speculations and local narratives. This film explores the creation of myths and truths surrounding this mysterious landscape. It forms an epistemological excavation into different paradigms.
