Dear Friends,

We are happy to communicate that the film:

The Enchanted Words of the Hupd’äh of the Amazon – Masters of knowledge, narrated by Renato Athias. 

Have been selected to the Films Selection of XIII SALSA Biennial  Conference  held from 21st June to 30th June at University of Virginia (VA).

On the 30th June, we have a session with a públic exhibition following the debate & discussion from 9AM to 11AM (EST). Please, send me a email to receive the link to attend the zoom video conference for this session.

This film was completed during this pandemic period and is about the traditional knowledge of the Hupd’äh people from the Northwest of Amazon, based on the narratives of three  chiefs of clans, Bihit, Casimiro and Mehtiw through the ethnographic archives collected by the anthropologist Renato Athias. This knowledge presented in the film does help to debate about human and non-human relationships in the current context of our societies.

We will be happy to receive you in this session on the 30th
