16th-Century Peru is ruled over by the Inca empire. Its citizens are a superstitious people. They make offerings to Pachamama, the Earth Mother, and her gods in order to thank them for abundant crops and good weather. A visit from the greedy Inca tax collectors and the subsequent invasion by Spanish troops provides a compelling backdrop for this exciting animated adventure story, which focuses on fun-loving 10-year-old Tepulpai, who sets off to rescue the village’s precious golden statue from the Inca palace. With his friend, Naira and their llama companion, a David versus Goliath battle ensues. From Didier Brunner’s (Ernest and Celestine) new animation studio Folivari comes a well-researched, captivating and fun animated film that is geared towards the under-10s but has plenty to appeal to older audiences.
Suitable for ages 6+.
