Spanish w/ English Subtitles

In Peruvian culture, the “tapados” are treasures that were buried during colonial times to protect them from the Spanish conquistadors; a light or flame emerges from the ground to indicate their location. Nina’s grandfather, Fausto, believes that one or more of these “tapados” are buried in his property and engages her to help him locate these treasures. This search will lead both estranged relatives to reevaluate their lives and come to terms with their own isolation.

En la cultura peruana, los “tapados” son tesoros que fueron enterrados durante la época colonial para protegerlos de los conquistadores españoles; una luz o llama emerge del suelo para indicar su ubicación. El abuelo de Nina, Fausto, cree que uno o más de estos “tapados” están enterrados en su propiedad y la involucra en su búsqueda. La misma llevará a los dos distanciados familiares a reevaluar sus vidas y a reconocer su enajenación.

Presented by The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago in collaboration with the Chicago Park District
