Abrísio da Silva Pedro, Alicélia Batista Cabreira, Ademilson Concianza Verga, Ambrósio Vilhava, Claudio Santamaria, Matheus Nachtergaele / Fiction / Portuguese, Guaraní

A funny, sharp and gorgeously-shot account of two cultures in fragile co-existence.

Chased off their ancestral lands and into bleak reservations, the Guarani-Kaiowá people have found their own ways to profit by the white man. But tensions still run high, and with ill luck apparently epidemic, something’s got to give… Shot with a luminous, dreamy clarity and underscored by a lairy wit that cuts through any solemnity or pretentiousness, Birdwatchers is an urgent, eloquent and wholly original statement.
