MINISTÉRIO DA CIDADANIA, GOVERNO DO PARANÁ E COPEL presents

Synopsis

This wild and wonderful fiction film unfolds as a sci-fi parody of ethnographic work. In it, a Dutch anthropologist travels with his wife and daughter to Patagonia in the near-distant future at the invitation of a wealthy Communist to study the last two surviving members of a slaughtered indigenous tribe. Whale’s characters speak six different languages (sometimes changing from sentence to sentence), including the Yachane Indian tongue, which consists of one word with endless inflections. It’s a film in which each character contains a world within himself or herself.

He sought to discover them over the course of more than 100 films, including works left lost or unfinished that audiences still might someday see.
