A reckless adventurer enters an isolated forest in search of Mayan ruins only to confront a creature as primeval as the forest itself.

 "HOMBRE Y TIERRA" - The Tale Of Mauro Bosque
The camera was found in a remote part of the San Ignacio Forest in Belize. Covered in dirt and blood and broken beyond repair, it sat on a forestry official’s desk for weeks before being linked to a missing internet personality, Mauro Bosque.

The government of Belize made the decision not to release the disturbing footage found on the camera and memory cards found in Mr. Bosque’s personal effects located nearby. Mauro’s Producers located the footage some time later and somehow managed to have it returned to them. Accusations of bribery abound but to date have not been proven.

  Hombre Y Tierra, is The Moving Image Company’s first self financed film and Executive Producer Robert Stewart’s first full length feature to be released by the company since he joined in 2008 as the company’s CEO. This is also the first feature film Written by Executive Producer Richard Watson, and is a suspenseful descent into primal fear and isolation. Director/Executive Producer Christian Cisneros handles this journey with a pace and tone that is reminiscent of legendary horror directors such as Dario Argento; as the path takes Mauro, played by Mauricio Ripke, into the darker places of the world as well as his own soul. 
What happened to Mauro in the forest during that three day period has remained a mystery until the recent discovery of this footage – footage that was likely stolen from a government office in Belize. This is the terrifying story of a man searching for a dream, only to find a living, breathing nightmare. This is the story of Mr. Bosque’s ill-fated, final adventure. Some things should remain a mystery.

We've done it. We made the movie...NOW what?
Hombre Y Tierra came out of our minds first, then our pockets. You see, as insane as it is to produce with your own money, that is exactly what my partners and I at TMI did. We knew it was a gamble, but we decided to self finance this picture, even if it meant spending our last dime to do it. And that's just what we did.


So, after 6 months in production and another 7 months in post, we did what we set out to do, and we're proud of what we have achieved. But we don’t have a credit card left between us to cover marketing materials, travel, accomodations, etc. - and we have submitted to more than 12 festivals...but we have no way to get there to promote our film!! So, we humbly ask for your support, so Hombre Y Tierra has a chance to find a distributor.
We feel we have achieved something great here – we shot our film in 2 languages over 6 months, yielding two separate versions. The first version to be released is the Spanish version (w/English subtitles) Hombre Y Tierra ("Man andEarth") and we hope you will see what a unique idea that is and help us to raise the funds necessary for us to show this amazing "foreign language" film, produced here in Austin, Texas.
