    • Synopsis
    • Smoking Mirror, a film project by Ecuadorian artist Eduardo Villacis which posits an alternative history following the landing of Columbus on the shores of the Americas. Instead of a European conquest of Aztec culture, Villacis envisions Columbus taken prisoner, his navigational tools examined and used to embark on an adventure to subdue and colonize a new world which will be renamed “Amexica.” Yes, the Aztecs conquer Europe in the year 1493 after encountering Columbus in 1492.
