    • Synopsis
    • In a starless city, a photographer wonders how would the ancient natives of the Costa Rican high mountains explain the firmament. His search for a perfect sky is entangled to a voyage of encounter with the cosmogony of the bribri community. In this journey, he will see himself identified as “sikua”, the name given by the bribri to the non-natives, and which means, literally, “foreign”.
