Dominican Republic / Namibia / Germany / France
2024, 123'

Pepe, as he was nicknamed by the Colombian media, was the first and last hippopotamus to be killed in the Americas. This is how a story within a story within a story begins. The power of oral tradition is underlined in this film in which our animal-narrator leads us, ghost-like, to think about the past and the beings who died without knowing their real circumstances.
