Storyline

Ever since their first contact with the Western world in 1969 the Paiter Suruí, an indigenous people living in the Amazon basin, have been exposed to sweeping social changes. Smartphones, gas, electricity, medicines, weapons and social media have now replaced their traditional way of life. Illness is a risk for a community increasingly unable to isolate itself from the modernization brought by white people or the power of the church. Ethnocide threatens to destroy their soul. With dogged persistence, Perpera, a former shaman, is searching for a way to restore the old vitality to his village.

Interesting look at the Traditional
1 February 2021 | by mikeww-64309See all my reviews

An interesting look at the changing cultural landscape involving the use of the traditional Shaman and how that is being overcome by the Church Priest. Villagers no longer seek the Shaman but instead seek the Priest......recommended viewing.
