Experimental documentarian Kaori Oda seems to thrive in extreme environments. Her previous film Aragane was shot in a Bosnian coal mine. In Cenote, she literally dives into the natural sinkholes unique to Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula known as cenotes. The ancient Mayans performed human sacrifices to them, believing they were connected to the afterlife, and they retain a mythical aura to this day. Combining otherworldly underwater imagery with narrations by locals familiar with the caves’ history and legends, Oda creates a one-of-a-kind aesthetic immersion into these natural wonders.
