Eduardo Navarro

Statement

On-Off

“I participated in a New Age Package trip with a group called Mantra. Their goal with this trip to the countryside was to sight UFO's and open a specific energy gate called 11/11. I asked them if I could film the experience and announced to them that I was going to travel with them dress up as a fat man, they said yes. This is not a scripted work the video follows for 2 days the experience as it occurred.”
