Plot Summary

A film shoot in Peru goes badly wrong when an actor is killed in a stunt, and the unit wrangler, Kansas, decides to give up film-making and stay on in the village, shacking up with local prostitute Maria. But his dreams of an unspoiled existence are interrupted when the local priest asks him to help stop the villagers killing each other by re-enacting scenes from the film for real because they don't understand movie fakery...

Edit
Trivia The main premise of the film - indigenous natives enacting a movie-making ritual - is based on Dennis Hopper's experiences while filming The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) in Mexico, in which he observed the locals doing the same thing. Hopper originally wanted to shoot in Mexico, too, but the production was finally moved to Chinchero, Peru. See more »
