MINISTÉRIO DA CIDADANIA, GOVERNO DO PARANÁ E COPEL presents

Synopsis

We are introduced to Bimi, a master craftswoman of the Huni Kuin ethnic group who became a political leadership in the village Segredo do Artesão (Tarauacá-Brazil), and now occupies a predominantly male position. Alongside the strength of indigenous female protagonism, the films’ originality lies in its meditation about the very process of making, which results from a constant negotiation with the community, as it interweaves meta-referentiality, documentary testimony of everyday life in the village, and the Huni Kuin cosmology, which informs and crosses everything.
