Experimental doc. | hdv | color | 15'0'' | Brazil | 2015
There is that which I see which is shown to me which I can`t see which I don`t see I was invited to film a ritual. That which can be shown to foreigners. A child of the tribe watches Disney`s Fantasia on TV. He is interrupted. What does the child live when he dances? What am I able to see from what is shown to me? *Shot in the Xucuru-Kariri, in Alagoas, Brazil
