    • Synopsis
    • It seems to be everywhere. A light so strong that totally blurs the vision, the wind as a sound guide to an immense space that is scary to hear because there is no noise. Around us, the immensity of the mountains above and the gaze of Pierre, a pilgrim who observes the Holy Mountain, the place from where the sun rises, where life begins. 'Simplemente Estamos Aquì' represents hope, the human capacity to understand that we all have a place on this planet, respecting ethnic groups and backgrounds. A documentary that seeks to bring the viewer to that energy of the sacred Wirikuta desert, through the story of a man and his particular point of view, presenting the way of change, faced with respect and love for the earth and its inhabitants! A simple story, an intimate diary of two European men, who want to prevent the ultimate destruction of one of the most mystical places on the planet, proposing a rethinking of the modern man's consciousness contextualizing it in the land. We did not want to draw an apologetic defense of non-Western population, nor paint Pierre and all those who are at his side in the fight against mines, as a contemporary hero. We wanted, through images, evoke emotions, sensations, something that inexplicably manages to slip under the skin and touch the deepest chords, a woolen thread that leads to the dreamlike and surreal. It belongs to the viewer to get an idea, based on its own, singular worldview.
