Tuã Ingügu

DIR: Daniela Thomas . 9 min . RJ/Brazil . 2019

In the Kalapalo cosmogony (an ethnic group that lives in the Xingú Indigenous Park), water is as old as humans and is the source of life. That is where all their sustenance comes from, their food, their drink, their joy. The idea of using water as a dumpster, of poisoning water is a dystopia. In Tuã Ingugu (Water Eyes) Chief Faremá - from Caramujo village on the banks of the Kuluene River - tells us about the birth of water and warns us about the consequences of disrespecting it.

Island of Heat

DIR: Ulisses Arthur . 20 min . AL/Brazil . 2019

Love has exploded Inside of one of the twin towers And now it flies like dust in the wind Looking for it it’s like Searching lice on a snake’s head Or hair in egg shells What I feel right now I can’t name it. There’s a deep hole between us Like craters in the ocean We are islands of heat From two distant cities From different sides of the world. Fabrício, 8th grade
