14.09.2023 | CROWRÃ aka THE BURITI FLOWER (BR/PT 2023, João Salaviza, Renée Nader Messora)

BR/PT 2023, D: João Salaviza, Renée Nader Messora, A: Ilda Patpro Krahô, Francisco Hỳjnõ Krahô, Solane Tehtikwỳj Krahô, 124’, original with english subtitles, DCP

The film centres on the relationship between a mother and her daughter: we see the mother living in the village and doing her daily chores in strolling images – she becomes more and more convinced that a person from the community should represent them at a big conference for indigenous rights in Brasilia. She is worried about her daughter because she cannot sleep and has visions in her dreams that she cannot decipher. As “embedded filmmakers”, the director duo João Salaviza and Renée Nader Messora lived and worked collaboratively with the indigenous Krahô community for over 15 months. From the perspective of the Krahô, the film tells with lyrical beauty about their lives, rituals, memories and dreams – and about their resistance.
