KARIKARI (SHORT DOCUMENTARY, 2015, 10min)
"The karikari is not man but devil!"
"He does exist in the town. It happens in the bus."
"He sends you to sleep in order to get your fat."
"He uses a bell to hypnotize people. So they become an easy prey."
"You won't find a karikari willing to have himself filmed. And they won't tell you a thing."
"Even I could be a karikari. I could teach myself. Everyone could be one.“
"In the Andean world, fat stands for soul. The karikari takes your soul from you, getting your fat."
