Take a journey through one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in history—and explore the enduring mysteries that remain hidden within its depths.

In 1974, a farmer in China was digging a well when he struck upon fragments of terracotta. Unbeknownst to him, the farmer had uncovered one of the most monumental achievements in human history. Buried beneath the surface of the land were thousands of life-sized statues, constructed over 2,000 years ago—silently and steadfastly guarding the tomb of their master: China’s first emperor.

Blood Wedding

by Federico García Lorca
translated by Nahuel Telleria
directed by Csaba Horváth

On the morning of her wedding day, a young Bride is visited by a headstrong former lover, reigniting a family blood feud that has been simmering for years. Their isolated village is a pent-up powder keg of fury and desire, and when they escape together, all that repression is released — to destructive ends.
