The video: 'IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MICTLāN'

Daniel H. Dugas [Canada] - 11th edition
In Aztec mythology, the Mictlān was the region of the underworld where most people went. The belief was that when dead warriors arrived there, they were reincarnated as hummingbirds and butterflies.

In the Middle of the Mictlān is a commentary on the fact of Jared Kushner being awarded the Order of the Aztec Eagle by Mexico in 2018. This award, the highest given to foreigners, is said to be awarded to individuals who have done a great service for Mexico or for humanity.

The video is constructed with a series of close-ups of Donald Trump’s mouth taken during his 2018 State of the Union Address.
