Mãri hi /A Árvore do Sonho
by Morzaniel Ɨramari
Amazon, Roraima/Brazil, 2023, 17'


When the flowers of the Mãri tree bloom, dreams arise. The words of a great shaman lead a dreamlike experience through the synergy between cinema and Yanomami dreams, presenting poetics and teachings from the people of the forest.

 

Thuë Pihi Kuuwi / Uma Mulher Pensando
by Aida Harika Yanomami, Edmar Tokorino Yanomami and Roseane Yariana Yanomami
Brazil/Amazon, Roraima/Brazil, 2023, 9'


A Yanomami woman watches a shaman while preparing Yãkoana, food for the spirits. Based on the narrative of a young indigenous woman, the Yãkoana that feeds the Xapiri and allows shamans to enter the world of spirits also proposes a meeting of perspectives and imaginations.

Yuri U Xëatima Thë / A Pesca com Timbó
by Aida Harika Yanomami, Edmar Tokorino Yanomami and Roseane Yariana Yanomami
Brazil/Amazon, Roraima/Brasil, 2023, 10'


Two young Yanomami filmmakers describe the process of fishing with timbó, a vine traditionally used to stun fish. The meeting of voices and perspectives suggests the re-enchantment of images as a way of telling stories.
 

Tekowe Nhepyrun / A Origem da Alma
by Alberto Alvares
Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, 2015, 48'


The film follows with surprising closeness the birth of a child within the Guarani tradition, with local midwives. Closeness that only the presence of the Guarani filmmaker could achieve, as well as maintaining the sequence in the film. Participate in the Guarani perspective of the renewal of life, in the baptism ritual, the occasion in which the soul of the little human being is handed over to him by Nhanderu (the Creator).

Nūhū Yãg Mū Yõg Hãm/ Essa terra é nossa!
by Isael Maxakali, Sueli Maxakali, Carolina Canguçu, Roberto Romero
Brazil/Minas Gerais, 2020, 70'


In the past, white people didn't exist and we lived hunting with our yãmĩyxop spirits. But the white people came, cut down the forests, dried up the rivers and drove the animals away. Today, our long trees are gone, the white people have surrounded us and our land is tiny. But our yãmĩyxop are very strong and taught us the stories and songs of the ancients who walked here.

Kaapora, o chamado das matas
by Olinda Muniz Silva Wanderley
Brazil, Bahia, 2020, 20'


A narrative of the connection between indigenous peoples and the Earth and their spirituality, from the point of view of Tupinambá director, Olinda Yawar, who develops an environmental recovery project on her people's lands. With the indigenous worldview as a lens, Kaapora and other spiritual characters are the central line of the film's narrative and argument.
 

Ibirapema
by Olinda Yawar Tupinambá 
Brazil, Bahia, 2022, 50'


Traveling between the mythical world and the everyday world, Ibirapema, a Tupinambá indigenous woman, transmutes and travels through space and time, dialoguing, wherever she goes, with the world of Western art, with the city and its concrete spaces and domesticated forests.

Ketwajê
by Mentuwajê Guardiões da Cultura (Krahô) and Beture Collective (Mebêngôkre-Kayapó)
Brazil, Tocantins, 2023, 77'


The Mentuwajê Guardians of Culture (a group of young Krahô filmmakers) invite the Beture Collective (Mebêngôkre-Kayapó) to visit their village and attend the Kêtwajê festival – an important initiation ritual that has not happened for ten years. For several days, children and teenagers go through various "tests" to transform into adult warriors, under the watchful eye shared by local filmmakers and Mebêngôkre-Kayapó guests.
 

Cupē Te Mē Iquêtjê Jipej Catêjê / Homem Branco Massacrou O Meu Povo Krahô
by Francisco Hỳjnõ Krahô and Felipe Kometani Melo
Brazil, Tocantins, 2023, 41'


Zacarias Ropkà escaped the brutal massacre suffered by the Krahô in 1940, when farmers in the region joined together to attack several villages, with their groups of armed peasants. In just one day, dozens of people were savagely murdered, mainly women and children. Seventy years later, Ropká shares with younger people the horrors he witnessed and how he managed to survive. 
 

Session presented by Hỳjnõ Krahô, Cruwakwỳj Krahô, Renée Nader Messora, João Salaviza

 

17 MAR 2024, 21h30 | TRINDADE CINEMA

Crowrã / A Flor do Buriti 
by João Salaviza and Renée Nader Messora
Portugal/Brazil, Tocantins, 2023, 124'

In 1940, two children from the Krahô indigenous people found an ox dangerously close to their village in the darkness of the forest. It was the harbinger of a violent massacre, perpetuated by farmers in the region. In 1969, during the Military Dictatorship, the Brazilian State encouraged many of the survivors to join a military unit. Today, faced with old and new threats, the Krahô continue walking on their bleeding land, reinventing infinite forms of resistance every day.
