Una Vida Karateka
Directed by Fernando Mántaras

For many years, this ambitious project remained an open question. We explored several proposals for the musical palette, yet we reached an answer when we saw “Death for five voices” by Werner Herzog.
Herzog’s work inspired this grandiose, filthy, religious and transgressive piece. It immerses its listeners in synthetic oceans with nods to Charly Garcia. A choir of men in a traditionally-female register and women in a traditionally-masculine register shares the stage with distorted punk bass lines, ambiented in an immense and unreal cathedral. And at times, a polyphonic, sacred organ sets the beat for the protagonist’s poetic improvisations.
