    • Synopsis
    • From the light that falls on the patio of his house on the day of the shadeless equinox in Quito, and inspired by Goethe's "Theory of Colours", the director takes us to several cities and landscapes in Latin America to reflect on the influence that the light has in the understanding of our surroundings. The Chilean friar Camilo Enriquez named Quito as the "Light of America" after the massacre of the pro-independence heroes of 1810. This event triggers in the film a poetic search around the symbol of light as a torch of freedom, source of knowledge and metaphor of love, "the word that vibrates the Universe".
