A crumbling civilization stationed on the Mexican island of Capaluco was once a bustling holiday resort and amusement park. “Welcome to Capaluco, the only all-inclusive island in the world! A place where fun is guaranteed for the whole family!” echoes from the loudspeakers. Delving into the relics of a decadent human empire, directors Miko Revereza and Carolina Fusilier revive the miraculous ruins through sonic reimaginings that remind us of a golden age, a meticulous observation of textures and formations, architecture and nature that converges around a mythological sea creature from the Philippines: the Siyokoy. The aquatic monster navigates through the architectural afterlife of the island as the past reverberates into a beguiling science-fiction tale conjured within the trenches of an abandoned paradise.
