The Shelmeca Serpent

La Serpiente de Shelmeca

Directed by Laura Bermudez

The second most important jungle in America hides an archaeological and mysterious secret of global importance for humanity and the mythology of an ancient indigenous population, known as The White City. This natural and cultural wealth is at risk of disappearing soon if we do not act on time. Wildres Wood, the only female biologist and activist of “Misquito” origin, takes us on a journey to the heart of this region in search of knowing and protecting Honduras’ most important treasure for the world. A story that proposes a look from within the territory, with female leaders and that suggests that reveals an undercovered place to world outside.
