Chuva é Cantoria na Aldeia dos Mortos

Drama
New Brazilian Cinema

Synopsis

15-year-old Ihjãc, an indigenous Krahô from the north of Brazil, is called to organize the funerary feast for his father so that his spirit can depart to the dead’s village. Denying his tribal duty, Ihjãc runs away to the city, where he faces the reality of being indigenous in contemporary Brazil.

Our take

Our new series on the best of contemporary Brazilian cinema starts off with an immersive, refreshing ethnographic docudrama. Touching on the crucial yet often disorienting chapter of young adolescence, this hypnotic prize-winner offers a sensory outsider’s look at the urbanized world we live in.

Critics reviews

An admirable, often fascinating fictionalized portrait of a tribal culture in Brazil informed by a young man resisting his destiny as a shaman.
