Tecuani and the Duende Official Teaser Trailer
A young girl, Tecuani, is unaware of the adventure she is about to embark on as she chases a purple lizard into a forest cave. Her journey begins with an encounter with the fearsome Tata Duende, a legendary guardian of the forest with missing thumbs and backwards feet. The Duende awakens young Tecuani to an epic story that has been forgotten for a thousand years. Will brave Hunahpu’s efforts to secure another chance for humanity be for nothing? Can Tecuani fulfil her destiny and find the ‘voice of the jaguar’ to awaken her people?

The Story Behind Belize's First Animated Short Feature
TECUANI and DUENDE may be the longest animated short film ever to be produced in Belize.
Now, it's not The Lion King, the film is only 18 - 20 minutes long, but it's a giant leap forward for Belize.
But it wasn't easy getting the project off the ground. Cherisse Halsall spoke to the film's creators today to find out about the story and the process behind the short film that is set to be the darling of this year's Belize film festival.
Tecuani and Duende Premieres at the Bliss Center for the performing arts on October 25th.
