The documentary film follows one of the largest expeditions undertaken by the National Indigenous People Foundation (FUNAI) in recent times, in 2019, to promote the reunion between a group of isolated indigenous people of the Korubo ethnic group and members of that family. The film focuses not on the lurking violence, but on the possibility of rekindling almost lost ties, perpetuating the existence of a people. The film also reveals one of the final actions of indigenist Bruno Pereira, brutally murdered in 2022. By assuming the understanding of the “other” as a two-way street, the very act of documenting explicitly becomes a transient exchange, and, precisely for this reason, so powerful. (C.I.)
