Dwindling down to a small group does not stop the Sáapreye people from caring for their traditions and rituals. The elder of the group, 120-year-old Mama Shuta, attempts to teach the younger generations while recalling tales of pre-colonial life.
This film from Venezuela is constructed with stunning cinematography.
This film is part of Perspectives Short Film Program and will be followed by a moderated discussion with filmmakers and guests.
