An experimental short film showing a contemporary version of the Five Suns is a Mexica creation myth. There were four suns before our own and different deities served the Sun at different times.
"In the Beginning" uses different film and animation techniques to represent the cultural and ethnical diversity amongst Mexicans, gathering a team of Mexicans and Mexican descendants to tell the story that started everything.
