Tutawa Tuagaek, the ageing leader of the Ãwa, a Brazilian indigenous tribe, is one of the last survivors of the 1973 massacre of Indians in the Amazon. This team of filmmaker-ethnographers records his everyday life in the company of young followers, to whom he is trying to pass on his experiences.
When VHS tapes were found in a university with footage revealing the oppression suffered by the Ãwa, a Brazilian indigenous tribe, two filmmakers decided to meet them. This ethnographic documentary intertwines the Ãwa’s everyday life and the tapes’ historical footage—an important work of memory.
