Teaser for Gothic Aztecs.
500 years after a bloody Aztec conquest of Gothic Europe, a European-Aztec girl is about to be sacrificed to the Gods in order to maintain the working machinery of the cosmos. The girl rebels against the Gods by becoming a member of the last cult of the Devil. The reveal of the Devil’s true identity as her nemesis Coatlicue, Mother of the Gods, leads to the apocalyptic final chapter in the Aztec European Empire.
Gotik Aztéques is a revisionist history / apocalyptic fantasy mix of live-action & animation.
It was originally commissioned by the French publishing collective Le Dernier Cri as a segment for their animation compilation Les Religions Sauvage.
I am currently finishing post-production on an extended version.
