COSMOS

The 3-channel video ‘Wajãpi’ follows the saga of the Wajãpi indigenous tribe in the north of Brazil while immersing the viewer in a universe of images that unveils at the rhythm of percussion and chants. The video shows the landscapes, figures and icons of indigenous culture, witnessing their resistance to genocide and to the appropriation of their land, with which they live in full symbiosis. Towards the end, the camera moves from the deep jungle to the heart of Brazilian political power, Brasília, as thousands of indigenous people from various tribes gather for a massive protest.
