Imbé Gikegü/The Scent of Pequi Fruit (2006, 36 min.)
Director: Takumã Kuikuro (Kuikuro) and Maricã Kuikuro
(Kuikuro) In Kuikuro with English subtitles.
The ending of the dry season is a time of celebration and merriment
in the Upper Xingu. Linking the past to the present, Kuikuro videomakers
tell a tale of dangers, pleasures, sex and betrayal, where men
and women, hummingbirds and alligators, build a world in common.
