Winner “Best Documentary Short film 2013” at Festival de Cine de Neiva “Cinexcusa”
Gustavo Zapata (61) is the oldest guide in the Tatacoa’s desert (Huila, Colombia). His life develops in a non-exciting routine in Villavieja and when tourists demand isn’t enough for his minimum wage, he uses to accept labours as a corpse embalmer. It’s now 42 years since he started his profession as a guide. Now as part of a cultural legacy he hopes to leave all his knowledge and experience to his closer friends.
