El océano analogo

The ocean is the only crossing to arrive to the Mount Analogue. Through each wave, which breaks into each of the primary colors, a gateway opens to a new perception... That of an ocean as deep, dark, and as difficult to access as the climb to the highest mountain. To the top where the sixth sun can be perceived. First piece of the short film series for the Sixth Sun project. Inspired by the pre-hispanic myth of the Sixth Sun. This chapter is inspired by the René Daumal book "Mount Analogue".
