Taripay Pacha: (n) Literally, the Age of Meeting Ourselves Again in the Inca prophecies when humanity will have the chance to consciously evolve in an era of harmony.
Interview with Producer/Writer Cristian Saliadarre
Congratulations! Why are you making your film?
I made this film to share with the world my own personal experience of self awareness and internal change. My letting go of the past, and negative attachments which have caused major blocks in my life until I transcended to a higher frequency spiritually, and creative elevation.
Imagine I’m a member of the audience. Why should I watch this film?
To know others and to know what they've been through is not easy unless you also go through that particular experience, even then it won't be exactly the same, therefore I've written this in a way that is abstract enough to capture the essence of my journey and in hopes that the audience will feel what I felt in that particular moment in time and maybe get a glimpse or insight on how I dealt with my own traumas and challenges…It's just seeing the world as I see it and a shout out to say 'Hey…you've probably seen some crazy things in life,, but guess what?….so have I"
How do personal and universal themes work in your film?
The Universal themes in my work are that we all deal with challenges in different ways, and the essence of my work is about mending relationships, redemption and broken love, second chances.
How have the script and film evolved over the course of their development and production?
Th script has evolved in the sense that I evolved as I wrote it and completed it, even now it's in the market with Shami Media Group in USA and it's taking a course unknown to me, but it now has its own journey and I'm just a PASSENGER enjoying the ride..
What type of feedback have you received so far?
I've received great feedback, mostly the understanding of the broken relationship between father and son, (which is my own experience between myself and my adult son)…. I am finding a lot of people want to be part of this film's journey, actually my first that I've written, and starred in as an actor, I feel it's because they resonate with the vibration and feel of it, and visually and on an auditory sense of the art, its making an impact with people's soul.
Has the feedback surprised or challenged your point of view?
It hasn't surprised me because deep down inside I feel I understand the internal mechanisms and hearts of people, I have a strong spiritual connection with people and understand the depth of humanity, so I feel I'm in tune more than most, with myself, I know myself so well and accept all my faults, and complexities and to know oneself is to know others.
What are you looking to achieve by having your film more visible on www.wearemovingstories.com?
To have the opportunity to reach the masses, like minded individuals who feel they've lost their way and feel alone and to help make a change and contribute to the humanity in my own way.
Who do you need to come on board (producers, sales agents, buyers, distributors, film festival directors, journalists) to amplify this film’s message?
For this film, it's pretty much set..I signed a world wide distribution deal with Wild-Maple FIlms in Canada and Shami Media Group (BOB SHAMI) in the US and this was through my music group called EVOLUZION-via my music manager Mark.S.Berry and brilliant film maker from Canada Liz Taylor (head of Wild-Maple Films CA).
What type of impact and/or reception would you like this film to have?
Self awareness and to awaken people to the fact that there we are multi dimensional beings having a human experience.
What’s a key question that will help spark a debate or begin a conversation about this film?
The controversy surrounding the South American Shamanistic, ritualistic spiritual experience known as AYUHASCA, which is what I experience and that has given me the awareness and visions to write whist I write, whether its films or music.
Would you like to add anything else?
My dream and vision have always been to take people through an experience, whether it's dark or inspirational.
What are the key creatives developing or working on now?
Right now it's only me creatively and I'm hoping for the universe to place the right people in my path and join me on this beautiful journey.

TARIPAYPACHA: The literal meaning:
Taripay Pacha: (n) Literally, the Age of Meeting Ourselves Again in the Inca prophecies when humanity will have the chance to consciously evolve in an era of harmony. KOAK In Andean Prophecy this word refers to a new golden era in the human experience. It heralds a coming together again of the Andean people, and the recreation of a new and better Inca Empire. QNO A Quechua saying that means time to find yourself. This time is now. IGMP Alternately translated as the age of re-encounter, encounter of the universe, or encounter of oneself; refers to a prophesized golden age of human experience in which we encounter ourselves once more as being one with the universe and thereby re-create the dream of the Inka Empire in a new and better way (See, the words which begin with tari above and below this term, which may serve to “de-Catholicize” the concepts contained in taripay pacha so the traditional meaning is clearer.
To know one's own existence…is to awaken the soul.
A glimpse into one man's journey into self discovery, truth and his own awakening through a higher awareness as he submerges himself within the depths of his subconscious.
In this world, their are two realities, the one which we can see with our own eyes, and then there is the one that we cant see, the one that is hidden to us, the truth, where the first element of the human perception is revealed to us at the exact moment we make that decision to change direction, and where fear becomes an obsolete, insatiable mechanism creating this beautiful illusion, conditioning us to believe that what we see in our dreams is imagination.
