The first Peoples of the Rainforest Film Festival take place on 4, 5 and 6 November. On the program, films made by indigenous and non-indigenous filmmakers and also films about non-traditional peoples who live and survive in the Brazilian Amazon forest.
Today: Two short movies: Xandoca and Sabá + debat + conversation with the public led by Sara Brandellero & Sergio de Carvalho
Long movie : Bimi
Bimi became the first Huni Kuin indigenous woman to organize her own village, a hitherto exclusive activity of men. In his life trajectory, because of his strong and determined personality, he faced a series of difficulties. Above all, due to hierarchical and traditional issues of the Huni Kuin people, an essentially patriarchal society, resulting in the departure of their native land of origin, culminating in the organization of a new village, in which it develops several roles, among them, curing pajé, ancestral knowledge of the Huni Kuin people.
