El Dorado is a haunting and mysterious ethnographic reality cut-up. Set in the highest settlement in the world, La Rinconada y Cerro Lunar (5500m) in the Peruvian Andes. A recurring illusion leads men to self-destruction, motivated by the same interests, and equipped only with the same basic tools now as they had in ancient times. A challenging, sometimes hallucinatory, study of
the human condition.
