Y Adán y

Short Film

AKA: ...y Adán y...

Country: Chile

Genre: Fantasy



From the depths of the sea is born Ad?n, a young boy who, walking along the beach, meets another boy, who gives him the knowledge of learning and maturing. As a young man he comes across a grotesque band who represent human society without understanding and rational purpose, obsessed with power and status within the group. A woman restores his emotional equilibrium and teaches him to love, but he is no longer the naked innocent who emerged from the depths at the start of the film. The complexities of life baffle him, like the patterns in the wisps of cloud in the sky. Finally, an old man hands a box, perhaps containing the secret of life, to another boy (played by Willy Rojas again) who emerges from the sea. But is the child ready to face the truth about human life? Could, in fact, the box be empty?...


  • Director Juan Pablo Donoso made this film for one of his college courses when he was a student at the Catholic University of Chile (the Pontificia Universidad Cat?lica de Chile) in Santiago in 1970.

An interpretation of this film is available on the Internet, it came out about a year or so ago. Film is filled with strange allegories and it does take some interpretation to work out what it is about. I'm still working on it.
