Uku Pacha tells the story of three people on a road journey through the Ecuadorian Andes: a businessman, a journalist, and the son of a politician. As the plot moves forward, the passengers seem caught in time loops, or a multiplicity of journeys, and start questioning why they were summoned, why together. As it turns out, for each of the main characters the recurring dream is closer to a recurring nightmare, although for different ethical reasons.
Diego Bonilla’s creative work is focused on the development of hypermedia content to achieve valid forms of expression in both poetry and audiovisual narratives. His cinematographic work uses programming to edit films in many different ways based on their story and the viewer’s input.
