The animated short film “The Mijares” originated from the intangible cultural heritage of Venezuela “The Dancing Devils of Corpus Christi”, telling the ups and downs of the inheritors of the intangible heritage. The Mijares family is one of the inheritors. They experienced poverty and displacement in the swaying era, and insisted on dancing to repay the gods year after year. Music and dance are gradually lost, the family declines, and the last generation of inheritors moves away from their homes, dancing alone to the wilderness, reuniting with the souls of their ancestors, as if returning to the summer night when they first prayed to the gods.
