Films to be Screened:

APIYEMIYEKI? (2020, 29 min, Brazil, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Portuguese w/ English subtitles, DCP)

An archive of drawings made by the Waimiri-Atroari during their first literacy experience build a collective visual memory from their learning process, perspective and territory while documenting their encounter with “civilised man”.

The Age of Stone (2019, 29 min, Brazil, France, Portuguese w/ English subtitles, DCP)

A voyage into the far west of Brazil leads us to a monumental structure – petrified at the centre of the savannah. Inspired by the epic construction of the city of Brasília, the film uses this history to imagine it otherwise. Through the geological traces that lead us to this monument, the film unearths a history of exploration, prophecy and myth.

There is Land! (2016, 13 min, Brazil, France, Portuguese w/ English subtitles, DCP)

“An encounter, a hunt, a diachronic tale of looking and becoming. As in a game, as in a chase, the film errs between character and land, land and character, predator and prey.” — Ana Vaz
