The following description comes from the event organizer.

In 2019, FUNAI, the Brazilian state protection agency working for Indigenous rights, sent an expedition of 30 people into the Amazon to make contact with the isolated Korubo people. This powerful film is an immersive ethnographic journey that breaks apart monolithic assumptions about the peoples who have long lived in the rainforest. The film also features Indigenist Bruno Pereira, who was murdered in 2022 during a mission to monitor illegal fishing in the Amazon territory. A Woman Thinking (Thuë pihi kuuwi - Uma Mulher Pensando) (Aida Harika Yanomami, Edmar Tokorino Yanomami \& Roseane Yariana Yanomami, Brazil, 2022, 9 min, in Yanomae \& Portuguese with English subtitles) A Yanomami woman observes a shaman during the preparation of Yãkoana, food for the spirits. According to the narration 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.
