Water, Moon is a short experimental film by visual artist Angel Lartigue that focuses on the pilgrimage site of 1800s curandero, Don Pedro Jaramillo in South Texas. Presenting a ceremonial performance within the shrine and burial place of the late shaman, the film includes a soundtrack by H C – (M) and video captured by Tere Garcia.
Water, Moon is part of CENOTE, a series of micro-residencies, an artist collective, and artist network taking place in the town of Falfurrias in South Texas. Water, Moon incorporates elements from Los Olmos creek and the shores of the Gulf of Mexico such as sand, clay and seaweed, alongside a bust of Don Pedro Jaramillo created in collaboration with Nadin Nassar. The project is site-specific and channels an ancestral connection to the land and the living flora and fauna of South Texas.
