Sergio Condori grew up on the shores of Lake Titikaka, dreaming of climbing the mountains, guardian deities for their native culture. After the death of his mother he moved to the city of La Paz. The film ACHACHILAS (which means both ‘ancestors’ and ‘mountains’ in the Aymara language) tells the story of Sergio living the contradictions of being a professional mountaineer in a society that crumbles the beliefs of his grandparents.
