Chuva é cantoria na aldeia dos mortos
Panorama | Contemporary World Cinema
Co-director Renée Nader Messora has been working with the Krahô indigenous people in northern Brazil since 2009, collaborating to set up a collective of Krahô filmmakers using cinema as a tool for self-determination and the strengthening of cultural identity. For nine months she and João Salaviza lived with the tribe developing this fictional drama, improvised by the cast in the Krahô language, and shot in earthy, organic tones on 16mm film. The original Portuguese title, incidentally, translates as “Rain is Singing in the Village of the Dead.”
“A patient and immersive ethnographic fiction… a relaxed, attentive and caring film with admirably little desire to claim itself for greater things.”—Daniel Kasman, mubi
