MEXICO CITY, MEXICO (RECENT) (REUTERS)
(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) MEXICAN DIRECTOR JUAN MORA CATLETT, SAYING:
"With a movie for which we didn't have much of a budget - 300,000 (USD) - the challenge of making the first picture of the Pre-Colombian world was enormous. During it came the idea - amongst other things - that in place of designing clothing for which we didn't have the money, we would paint the actors in symbolic colours. So, for example, instead of having a leopard warrior costume, we painted the man yellow with black spots."

"When I heard about the North American movie, I was very curious and I discovered that between my first film - Aztlan - and this American movie were lots of similarities. The use of body painting was one of them."

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) MEXICAN DIRECTOR JUAN MORA CATLETT, SAYING:
"If it had only been one thing I would have thought it just a coincidence, but I asked myself: 'Was that a coincidence?' And I felt it necessary to make it public that we developed a body of work of this type 16 years ago, so that when our movie "Erendira" comes out people don't say that the Mexicans are copying the North Americans images from pre-hispanic Mexico."
