Premiere of film In lack each alakin

Seeks to raise awareness about forest caring

In lack each alakin, which means "I am you, and you are me" in Maya language, code of the forests’ ethics, is the name of the film that was presented this afternoon at the Mexico Pavilion, located at the Cancunmesse exhibition center.

This film tells the story of Jack, an investor who throughout the film recalls his childhood in the jungles of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas. The character represents a jaguar, an animal that lives in the forests of southern Mexico.

Due to a wake-up call that forces him to return to the side of his mother, Jack embarks on the road to his home town, a trip that is unexpectedly violent  due to a hurricane, a force of nature that causes the plane where he travels to fall into the sea, without ever knowing the final destination.

The story represents the journey that a jaguar (Jack) takes back to its natural habitat. Nature (Jack's mother) is suffering the effects of climate change and this causes hurricanes that prevent the feline to reach its wild habitat in Chiapas.

Catherine Cunningham, director of the short film, says that "the main point of the story is that people become conscious about the environment, no matter who you are, where you live, what culture you come, we all depend on the planet’s natural resources and same time, the economy also depends on them, and we must cherish."

She added that the short film’s location was in Yucatan, done at the request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and to be released under the COP16.

The official release of this 3-D film is tomorrow December 2 at 16:30 at the Pavilion Mexico Cancunmesse Convention Center.
