Synopsis

Xingu is about the real-life Villas-Boas brothers who worked for over 25 years to create a homeland for the indigenous peoples of the Amazon.

Our take

In this portrait of a near 30-year expedition to establish a reservation for the Amazon’s Kaiabi Indians, Brazilian director Cao Hamburger works in broad strokes on a vast canvas to craft a film of epic scope, potent simplicity, and of great historical and political relevance. An underrated gem.
