The fables of ancient times are still present on the Oaxacan coast of Mexico. Tales of shapeshifting, telepathy and deals with the Devil are embedded in the past colonization of the region. The legend of Faust, its literature and the myths are mixed in with the local people, while they try to colonize and to control nature through a building project that seems endless. The border between fiction and reality, between what it's real and what the eye can and cannot see disappears.

“If Faust manifests something, is Bussmann’s acute and assertive way of creating stories, which establishes a beautiful conversation between dialogue and images.”
—El espectador imaginario

“The shadowed border between human and non-human perception is one of Fausto’s sustained topics of interrogation.”
—Peter Goldberg: Slant Magazine

“Fausto puts a striking and abstract spin on a familiar fable.”
—Kevin Ritchie: Now Toronto

“In Bussmann’s film, and the anthropological cinema to which it loosely belongs, the limits of human perception are tied up with the gaps in rigid, supposedly “objective” colonial belief systems.”
—Josh Cabrita: Cinema Scope
