A form of bull-fight, in which a condor is tied on the back of a bull, takes place only in very few villages of the South-Peruvian Andes. One of these places, Cotabamas, is visited year by year by various photographers and film teams from all over the world with the same objective: to document this cultural event for a foreign audience. The film shows that the difference between documentary and fictional films is not large and that the idealization of other cultures in audio visual representation, as a certain kind of market strategy, thoroughly could be described as a modern form of visual colonization.
